Star Count is CPRE, the countryside charity’s annual survey of the nation’s view of the night sky.
Just look to the heavens between 6-14 February and count the number of stars you see in the constellation of Orion to help us map how light pollution affects our view of the stars.
This year we’re asking people to take part from home.
