A Dark Sky
The west coast of Ireland is one of the few places left in Western Europe where we can still see pristine clear dark skies on non-cloudy nights. This resource is becoming more and more valuable as the world faces more and more light pollution affecting the environment, the biodiversity and humans living on this planet. Being able to look up at a clear, dark sky is becoming more and more rare in the developed world. Authors, artists, and even scientists have started to express concern about what our lack of daily exposure to a dark night-time sky might mean for our psyche and our sense of place in the universe.
