There are very few things as awe inspiring as a night sky full of stars. And Ireland has some of the best viewing spots in Europe, despite our weather!
The impact of light pollution on wildlife, and humans, has been well studied, and is worth a quick Google, but the simulation below shows exactly how much people in urban areas miss out on. There is nothing that makes us feel so small and at the same time inspires us so much as the night sky, so if you’re planning a weekend away and want to see something that offer amazement to children and romance to adults head out West. In particular around August 11-13 each year go for a late walk and see the amazing Perseids meteor shower with up to 100 shooting stars an hour.
