Stars shining bright above you

Published: 11 January 2021

A dark starry sky is one of the most magical sights imaginable. But light pollution means that many of us can’t see the stars.

The CPRE's annual Star Count is back, and they would like your help to map the nation’s view of the night sky --- but this year, from home.

It’s easy to be a part of Star Count: just look to the heavens between 6-14 February and count the number of stars you see in the constellation of Orion.

It’s a safe, outside activity to do as a family or household, from your home, garden, balcony or even bedroom window, and everyone can take part.

As we’re all asked to stay at home, please don’t travel to do a Star Count.
