Twinkle Twinkle Little Star (s)
It's time to count the stars!

We've been gazing at the stars since time began, we've worshipped them, we used them to navigate and we've been inspired by them

From Shakespeare to Coldplay - the stars have inspired.

To see the stars, we need dark skies.
Dark skies can be degraded by light pollution.
We need dark skies - we need night and day!
Natures natural rhythm depends on night skies - for migration, for feeding and for reproduction
As dark skies mark the difference between night and day, they also mark the difference between urban and rural landscapes.

We are so very lucky in North Yorkshire to have some of the darkest skies in the country. Right now CPRE are running the annual star count. 

Wrap up warm, get outside and count the stars 
our national web site will show you how ....
Anyone can do it, any where.
Take a good long look at the skies above - the views are so, so beautiful on a clear night.

Take part in CPRE's annual star count and help us map the dark sky areas of England.
We use Star Count to gather evidence about how light pollution affects views of the night skies and help support our work to tackle excessive or unnecessary lighting.

When you wish up on a star ...... 
Take part in the Cosmic census!
