GLOBE at Night is an annual 2-week campaign in March. People all over the world record the brightness of their night sky by matching its appearance toward the constellation Orion with star maps of progressively fainter stars. They submit their measurements on-line and a few weeks later, organizers release a map of light-pollution levels worldwide. Over the last four GLOBE at Night campaigns, volunteers from over 100 nations have contributed 35,000 measurements. The event begins on March 3rd, 2010 and continues each night until March 16, 2010 Report what you see at the website at: http://www.globeatnig... Globe At Night

    Saw a little more than expected. Faintest star I could see was η Ori (mag 3.35).

    I lucked out with the weather, clear skies, the air was unstable causing massive twinkling, light pollution resulting in approx mag 2.5 seeing.

    The time is erroneous it should be after Sunset tonight, too late to change it. It appears that tonight will be a little cloudy but Saturday March 6th has a good forecast, I will set up a meetup for then.
