GLOBE at Night 2013


The GLOBE at Night program is an international citizen-science campaign to raise public awareness of the impact of light pollution. The worldwide campaign invites citizen-scientists to record the brightness of the night sky by visually matching the appearance of a constellation like Orion with star maps of progressively fainter stars or using meters to obtain more precise measurements. Measurements are submitted to a central website by computer or smart phone. From these data an interactive map of all worldwide observations is created.

There are five GLOBE at Night campaigns in 2013: January 3 - 12, January 31 - February 9, March 3 - 12, 2013, March 31 - April 9, and April 29 - May 8. Click here for more information.

La observación del cielo nocturno es una actividad muy motivadora. En nuestro caso, desde la Escuela Primaria Particular Incorporada N° 1345 "Nuestra Señora del Carmen" de Pujato -ARGENTINA-, hemos participado de GaN desde su comienzos.
En este año 2013, observamos el cielo y participamos del GaN el día 12 de marzo observando las constelaciones: Orión y Cruz del Sur. En esta ocasión realizaron observaciones los niños de primer grado y cuarto grado como actividad nocturna durante un campamento escolar.
Nos estamos preparando para las próximas observaciones!
