About StarCount

Join thousands of other students, families, and citizen scientists counting stars, October 29 - November 12, 2010 for the fourth annual Great World Wide Star Count! This international event encourages everyone to go outside, look skywards after dark, count the stars they see in certain constellations, and report what they see online. This Windows to the Universe citizen science campaign is designed to encourage learning in astronomy and was featured as part of the Dark Skies Awareness Cornerstone Project for the 2009 International Year of Astronomy!
