Dark Skies

Campaign for Dark Skies

Campaign for Dark Skies, sometimes also known as CfDS, is a forum, run by astronomers in the UK in support of ensuring that anyone can find places to go to, in order to be able to view the Milky Way and other aspects of our Night Skies, free from the problems caused by unnecessary or overuse of artificial lighting, in town centres as well as out-of-town developments.

If you have never been to a place where there is little or no light pollution you cannot fully appreciate just what can be seen of our own galaxy - and you don't need a telescope to view it - if you know where to go.

CfDS is all about outreach activities to show what can be done to preserve our views of the night skies.
