Globe at Night is a world-wide, citizen-science campaign, held monthly (Jan 13-22) to raise public awareness of the impact of light pollution by inviting citizen-scientists to measure & submit their night sky brightness observations.  

It's easy to get involved -  first of all, pick a good, safe location from which you can view the night sky over the dates of the GaN Campaign, for instance for Jan 13-22, 2023.  Visit < www.darksky.org > for dark places near your home.
