World Night in Defence of Starlight
Looking up at the canopy of space for stargazing is a wonderful experience we can freely have. Do you think we can do it forever?
Since 2007, World Night in Defence of Starlight is celebrated with different actions and initiatives to promote its protection.
"Declaration of La Palma in Defence of the Night Sky and the Right to Observe the Stars", considering the dark sky an outstanding, universal cultural, scientific, environmental resource to promote and develop “astronomical tourism”
Starlight World Night
Have you ever celebrated it? What did you do?
We are going to share your night sky view. On 20th April, take a picture from your window or the place you like the most at night and upload it on the Padlet.
We will check if we can see the stars, the light pollution and the horizon in our different cities and share with our partners. What can you see? How does it make you feel?
Can't you see them clearly? Have a look at Hubble space telescope!
It orbits far above the Earth which makes objects can see more clearly as clouds can block the view of the Earth-based telescopes
