Are you interested in astronomy? The Countryside Charity have developed a challenge for you to try. Each year, the CPRE ask the nation to help measure light pollution in their area by getting starry-eyed with them and counting visible stars. 

You can join in by choosing a clear night between the 6-14 February 2021, looking up at the constellation of Orion and letting them know how many stars you can spot. 

This year, they're asking everyone to take part from home. You can stargaze from your garden, balcony, doorstep or even bedroom window. 

They will give you plenty of support on how to do this. Once you've done your star-spotting, they will share a form with you where you can quickly and easily send the your count.
