Astronomers say that on a clear, moonless night in a place far away from city lights, you should be able to see about 2000 stars. The darker the skies, the more stars you can see. Astronomers have calculated that there are about 6,000 stars potentially visible with the unaided eye, below are images of the night sky at the Water Watch camp, could you count how many stars there are in the pictures?

Will the data gathered on this trek be stored in the computer banks of GLOBE? Global Learning and Observation to Benefit the Environment (www.globe.gov) has protocols that allow scientists to correlate the data you gather with the data gathered in the rest of the world.

Data on cloud cover, water clarity, water level, and ground cover at various locations defined by Global Positioning Satellites over a period of time are crucial to detecting trends and informing human decisions.
