I might vacation there. Living in a big city, I never get to see all the brilliance of the Universe.

"Such skies are rapidly disappearing and less than 10% of people in the UK can now see the Milky Way from where they live."

:(

Looks like the only Milky Way I'll ever see then are the chocolate bars on the store counters.

We will be in space soon enough, and telescopes will become the common camera, just you wait and see, the Zoom function will be tremendous.:cool:

I come from a pretty small town (21k people or so), so I kinda miss star gazing like that. Dark forests were just a couple of miles away:/ Too much light pollution here in the Netherlands.

Some places towards the South here in my country allow for awesome stargazing. Here. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alentejo) Sadly, they're pretty underdeveloped and that's one of the side effects. :p

And BTW, there's some pretty incredible pictures in the Dark Sky site. http://www.darksky.org/page/IDSPlaces
