Sark is world's first 'dark sky island' was created by Gareth_OFlaherty

An interesting article in today's Guardian online about Sark (one of the Channel Islands) and its fabulous dark skies. Interesting stuff.

Yes Gareth, that looks great, I'm sure some people would love to experience there, but no cars? How would you get your equipment across? Still, it's an advancement on the war against light pollution.
