Our star count challenge

Your star count results
Tell us how many stars you counted in the constellation of Orion during our Star Count week, Monday 31 January – Sunday 6 February. This will help us plot a map showing where there are the darkest skies where the most stars can be seen. By taking part in our Star Count you will be helping us to highlight the problem of light pollution which is diminishing our view of the stars and experiencing the natural beauty of the night sky.
