dark sky zone 2018

As little as three-hundred metres away from the buildings at le Moulin du Chemin, there is virtually no light-pollution and you can be enchanted by the brilliance of our Galaxy, the Milky Way  wait after sunset for two or three hours, on a cloudless night and with no moon. If you linger, gazing skywards, you can see shooting stars at the rate of about one every twenty minutes  so says Peter.

It is surprising how many folks have never been enthralled and awe-inspired by the Milky Way. If you haven't already seen it, it is highly recommended.

The sliver light of a moonlit night is also enchanting. It can best be seen in a region of low light-pollution.

The fabulous background picture is attributed to NASA -- image 611571main_2012_darkrift-orig_full.jpg. We show only a tiny part of the edge of it The contrasts at the centre of the image are too great to allow readable text to be superimposed.
