Dark Sky Education

Dark Sky Education (in progress) Is an EPO Program.

It runs Globe at Night, an annual program to measure the sky quality with SQM (Sky Quality Meter) or naked eye, with the participation of students, teachers and general public. It has been developed in the Coquimbo Region for 3 years.

During the campaign of 2010, there were 67 schools participating with 83 teachers involved in training throughout the region. We also had the very special participation of teachers from Copiapó (3rd Region) and Antofagasta (2nd Region) from the north of Chile.
