Sargazing on Exmoor – Dark Sky Reserve
Exmoor national park has very little light pollution such as streetlights and busy roads. These unshielded lights send their lights in all directions including up, setting the night skies aglow very much like the sun does during the day. Often light pollution is over looked, however Exmoor stargazers are rewarded with spectacular star filled skies and magnificent views across the cosmos.
