Participate in a worldwide citizen science campaign to observe and record the magnitude of visible stars as a means of measuring light pollution in North Central Texas. Participants will learn how to locate the constellation Leo. They will learn stars have different magnitudes of brightness in the night sky and that this information is of interest to scientists studying light pollution. Participants will collect data and report their findings to the GLOBE at Night online database. Data will be analyzed and mapped for participants to see the results of this global campaign.
Join us for a special story time and sunset hike prior to the GLOBE at Night event and a night hike following the GLOBE at Night event.
