Cpre - The Annual Star Count in Orion!
The Council for the Protection of Rural England are repeating their annual campaign, asking us all to count the numbers of stars which we can see in the Orion constellation, and then to send in our results. From this data, a national map of ‘dark skies’ and levels of light pollution can then be drawn. See their website at www.cpre.org.uk for details on how to register and sign up for ‘Star Count 2020’. Anyone can take part – it is all free! Just have a go and become a ‘Citizen Scientist’!
Without street lights, this village and parish provides a narrow zone of slightly darker sky between the glow of lights from the urban areas of Luton, Hitchin and Stevenage. The Preston Trust is a member of the Hertfordshire branch of the CPRE.
