On June 21st lovers of the night sky are invited to participate in a mass survey to help map light pollution across the Earth. Bintel are sponsoring this event organised by the Australian Dark Sky Alliance (ADSA) with a give-away of a new StarSense Explorer 130DX Telescope. This is one among many other giveaways for this event that you won’t even need to leave your house for! Be part of the effort to preserve our natural heritage – access to the night sky.
What do you need to do to be a part of this great challenge?
Sign up here – the earlier you do this the better. Weekly we’re giving prizes away and tips for the event to registrants.
Sign in – 21 June, 3pm NZST
Watch some videos, answer all 5 questions, and do a night sky observation.
Finish all parts of the lesson within 24 hours.
WHY should you sign up?
It’s not every day of the year you get asked to go outside at night and look up to the stars. So why should you do it on this night? So you can:
- Learn how easily you can help to reduce light pollution
- Be a citizen scientist for a night
- Say you’ve helped our natural environment
- Walk away a World Record Holder!
- Win PRIZES (paid registrations only)
