STARGAZE is an online project from the Weather Channel exploring dark skies and light pollution around the world.
Users are invited to explore the night sky in dozens of locations around the world. The website also provides information about how to figure out the best time for stargazing using the new moon calendar. Finally, students can learn about the causes and impact of light pollution.
Librarians will find this website to be an excellent introduction to importance of dark skies and the need to prevent light pollution. Collaborate with the science teacher on a unit that focuses on light pollution causes and prevention.
