Just for fun

Star Gazing

CPRE the countryside charity is having a star count this February and we thought this would be a great 'just for fun' activity.


How to join in
This year, we’re asking you to take part from home.

To take part you need to count the stars you can see within the constellation of Orion, the hunter.

Orion wears a belt and holds a club and a shield.

See below for more details and on how to join, where to send your results and how to make an orion view finder
