Short description

Using a mobile app that shows the sky students measure magnitudes of visible stars from their area to measure light pollution in an indirect way. They record their observations / measurements and they photograph the observed area. They then plot the size of the visible stars against the distance from the largest urban center in our area and discuss ways to limit their ‘bright imprint/light pollution’. Finally, the students discuss and propose ways to limit light pollution in their regions.
