Description: Globe At Night is a long running citizen science campaign where people around the world measure and record the brightness of their night sky. This September we are challenging people around the world to make as many observations as possible when there is roughly equal length day and night near the equinox. Dr. Connie Walker talks about Globe at Night and how you can participate and contribute your data.
