great world-wide star count

I’ve always loved gazing at the stars. As a child, my father took me to programs at a local college’s planetarium. I can remember annoying my elementary school teachers by knowing more about the earth’s movements, the moon, and the stars than they did.

Anyway, there’s a great program to encourage interest in astronomy: Great World-Wide Star Count. It’s also a program to help gather more information about light pollution. SiliconValley.com has a good article about it. I’m going to participate. I have seen more light pollution in my area over the past 5 years and am a little bummed about it.
