Description:  What would it be like without stars at night? What is it we loose? Truly starry night skies have given us poetry, art, music and the wonder to explore. A bright night sky (aka light pollution) affects energy consumption and wildlife too. Join in to glean how as a citizen-scientist you can easily measure the brightness of your night sky, contribute your measurement quickly on-line and use the data in all sorts of projects. The international GLOBE at Night citizen-science campaign (www.globeatnight.org) will be a main focus for discussion.
