  Title Dark skies in the UK Type Journal Article
  Year 2012 Publication Astronomy & Geophysics Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 53 Issue 3 Pages 3.25-3.25  
  Keywords Editorial  
  Abstract The United Kingdom is a highly and densely populated country (∼62 million people) with a high level of light pollution. It is not easy to find places in the UK where you can still see the Milky Way — indeed the best that is often on offer is the main defining stars of the major constellations, the brighter planets and the Moon. Even the Moon is hardly noticeable from central London. But there are still dark places in the UK. The best area to find them is in the remote northwest of Scotland — but this region is not noted for its fine weather and neither is it easy to get to. However, there are places closer to centres of population that offer satisfactorily dark skies where the Milky Way and a few nebulosities are visible with the naked eye. Sites of this sort of quality are still to be found in the National Parks with excellent access to major centres of population.
