What are dark skies?

The Isle of Wight has the most fantastic, inky black skies.  This is because of the low light pollution over our Island.  Find out more about Dark Skies here.  See the Campaign for Rural England's light pollution map here.

The Vectis Astronomical Society are holding their annual Star Party at Brighstone from March 11-15th.

Why not check Wightstay for self-catering accommodation in the West Wight for the event here.  Or you could look for camping and touring parks in the West Wight here.  If you fancy something a bit more luxurious we have a great list of hotels and B&Bs here

Come and join the star gazing at the Isle of Wight Star Party this March!
