where in the world to see dark skies
You will already have seen the Glory of the Milky Way when you have 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 - with a failed electrical generator - 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 web), 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.
