Skye for Dark Sky

There are 50 so-called Dark Sky Discovery Sites in the UK and nine of them are to be found in Skye (above). They may not feature in our everyday lives at present, but come late November / early December there will be a demand for both telescopes

and vantage points for them because of Comet Ison. It's on its way, at some 100 miles per second, and will be an attraction flying relatively close to Earth. A full account of this phenomenon-to-come appears in the West Highland Free Press. Please note if you first heard Ison's name mentioned on this blog.
