Globe at Night with Dark Sky Ireland

This event is over.

Date:Sunday October 4 2020 - Saturday October 10 2020


During Space Week 2020, Dark Sky Ambassadors from the Dark Sky Ireland Community will help you get involved with citizen science through the Globe at Night program. Check out the video below for advice on how to take part.

The Globe at Night program is an international citizen-science campaign to raise public awareness of the impact of light pollution by inviting citizen-scientists to measure their night sky brightness and submit their observations from a computer or smart phone. Light pollution threatens not only our “right to starlight”, but can affect energy consumption, wildlife and health. More than 180,000 measurements have been contributed from people in 180 countries over the last 12 years, making Globe at Night the most successful light pollution awareness campaign to date!
