Just something Random and Cool, 1st Dark Skies Island in England

I didn't realize there was so much behind this, but there is actually a large organization (International Dark Skies Association, IDA) and over 300 countries, cities and states have been designated as a Dark Sky community.  Read more about it here on the Wiki site.

And now the official 1st island to get this designation was announced this week, the Channel Island of Stark, just off the south coast of England.

I think this is SUPER COOL.  I love the night sky, and the stars.  So enjoy learning:)
