globe at night

I wish I had reported this a week earlier but here it is now.
Be sure to try and participate in this yearly event. It only
takes a few minutes of your time. Globe at Night runs from
March 3rd to March 16th. Have fun and participate!

GLOBE at Night is an annual 2-week campaign in March. People all over the
world record the brightness of their night sky by matching its appearance
toward the constellation Orion with star maps of progressively fainter stars.
They submit their measurements on-line and a few weeks later, organizers
release a map of light-pollution levels worldwide. Over the last four GLOBE at
Night campaigns, volunteers from over 100 nations have contributed 35,000
measurements. A record number of nearly 45% of these measurements came
from last year’s campaign as part of the celebration of the International Year
of Astronomy. You can see this data on the Map page.

Thanks to everyone who participates! Through GLOBE at Night, students —
alongside teachers, parents and community members — are amassing a data
set from which they can explore the nature of light pollution locally and across
the globe.

An audio podcast (10 minutes) can be heard on light pollution and how to
participate in GLOBE at Night here,



This is one of their THREE DAY WORK WEEKS that we all pay for.
I am ready to start from the beginning by voting out all elected
officials and not letting any of them stay in office for more than
two terms. No more lifelong healthcare, retirement, voting in
their own pay raises, taking perks on our taxes, etc.

The guy sitting in the row in front of these two…. he’s on Facebook,
and the guy behind Hennessy is checking out the baseball scores.
These are the folks that couldn’t get the budget out by Oct. 1, and
are about to control your health care, cap and trade, and the list
goes on….
