UK Receives Two IDA Designated Dark Sky Places





The IDA, a non-profit organization fighting to preserve the night sky, has announced the designation of two new Dark Sky Places in the United Kingdom.


The International Dark-Sky Association has announced the designation of two new International Dark Sky Places in the United Kingdom (UK), including one that represents the largest land area of protected night skies in all of Europe. This makes six the total number of IDA International Dark Sky Places in the UK, second only to the United States.

IDA is proud to recognize Northumberland International Dark Sky Park and Isle of Coll International Dark Sky Community for their exceptional efforts in helping preserve and promote dark night skies over Britain.

"The naming of two new Dark Sky Places in the UK really takes dark skies in Europe to the next level," IDA Executive Director Bob Parks said. "We're seeing the issue approaching critical mass and placing dark skies along the frontline of conservation issues in Britain. We hope that message extends further to continental Europe and beyond."
