What's it all about?

Star-filled skies are one of the most magical sights our countryside has to offer. We want to reconnect people across the country with the wonder of a truly dark sky.

Our research shows that light pollution is leaving fewer stars than ever visible to the naked eye, and we need your help to track how light levels are changing.

Become a ‘citizen scientist’ and take part in our Star Count, a cosmic census to map light pollution. 

We’ll be asking you to choose a clear night between 21-28 February 2020 and look to the skies to see how many stars you can spot within Orion.

And don’t worry, we’ll give lots of guidance so you know where to look! It’s a great, easy piece of stargazing – no telescopes required - for kids and adults.

Register your interest now to make sure you’re the first to hear more about the Star Count 2020.
