return to DARK SKY ZONE

where in the world to see dark skies

IYou will already have seen the Glory of the Milky Way if you have ever stopped on a clear moonless night on a deserted Dark Desert Highway far from human habitation or slept on the deck of your ocean-going sailing vessel on such a night.

The Canadians started to publicise Dark Skies and today there are many places designated as Dark Sky Preserves (look on the internet), usually in the United States or near astronomical observatories - even in Scotland.

At le Moulin du Chemin the Glory of the Milky Way is easily observable, if you can stay awake and depending on prevailing moon and weather conditions.
