This is a project where using photographs taken by the astronauts at the International Space Station (ISS), volunteers from all over the world help classifying them in order to analyze the light pollution of the cities.

The project started at the Citizen Cyberscience Summit as a prototype as a collaboration with the UCM group of Extragalactic Astrophysics and Astronomical Instrumentation.

Right now is being developed as part of an ongoing workshop in Medialab-Prado: Madrid Laboratorio Urbano.

This project has become one of the most popular projects in Crowdcrafting, with more than 100 thousand tasks, and storing in one single day more than 80 thousand answers.

The project has official support from NASA, ESA, ISS, etc. and has been featured in FOX tv. Here you have some tweets about the project:
