Aside from the telescopic views, individuals, families, schools and astronomy clubs can all participate in Globe at Night from April 6-15, which is all about becoming aware about our views of the night sky and preserving it for future generations.

Designed to both educate people about the heritage of the starry sky that is being lost to light pollution, and to gather data from citizen scientists for research, this insightful program educates people about what they’re missing when looking up.
