Globe at Night shares resources that encourage citizen scientists to submit and share observations of the night sky to compile information on the impact of light pollution. To guide citizen scientists, information on the site includes guides to assist in locating constellations that summarize the mythology behind each constellation's name. Additional links contain information on light pollution, links to educational standards, and interactive maps with observation details.
In the ClassroomInclude Globe at Night with your lessons about stars and constellations to teach students about the different star formations and the impact of light pollution on our ability to view stars. If you and your students are unsure about what you are seeing in your location, use Neave Planetarium's < a href="/single.cfm?id=10137">reviewed here app to view and learn about objects observable from your location. As an extension activity, ask students to write a new mythological story about one of the constellations observed. Share stories as a comic strip using Free Comic Strip Maker, < a href="/single.cfm?id=16999">reviewed here or as an interactive story created with Elementari < a href="/single.cfm?id=18507">reviewed here.
