    Here is your chance to help scientists determine the clarity of skies in your area. Pretty simple really, all you need is a pair of eyes. Go to the site and determine which constellation you should seek. Report how many stars you see. This information will help scientists determine the degree of light pollution and determine methods of keeping the skies clear. This survey will run to November 6, 2008.
