Hey amateur astronomers: Want to help measure the effects of light pollution on a global scale? From Wednesday 3 March (that's tomorrow) to Tuesday 16 March, participate in the GLOBE at Night project.

It's really very easy. All you have to do is go outside every evening after sunset (between 7 and 10 PM), look for Orion, eyeball the magnitude of its brightness, and report your observations on the site linked above. The site gives you all the information you need to find your latitude & longitude, to locate the constellation and to evaluate the brightness of the stars. I'll be doing this from the Huxley building at Imperial College London (Lat: 51.49915066919835 Long: -0.17953097820281982) and from my home in Cambridge.
