Globe at Night is a campaign to measure light pollution across the world. What other way is there to know the extent of the problem without measuring it? Learn how to take measurements where you live and submit that data. Even if you only submit one time, it helps assessing the extent of light pollution. Also, learn where every naked eye planet can be seen. See what's up in the night sky every week with "Eyes on the Sky" videos, astronomy made easy.
