Dark Sky Terschelling
There is still real darkness in the De Boschplaat nature reserve on Terschelling. Really dark nights with beautiful stars and moonlit skies. Or pitch dark with a new moon or a cloudy sky.
Terschelling is officially one of the darkest places in the world. And with that, the Netherlands has its first Dark Sky Park. A predicate to be proud of!
Dark Sky Parks are areas in the world where night-time darkness comes into its own and where people are invited to come and enjoy nature. You really don't need a telescope to admire the stars. In clear weather the Melkweg can be seen clearly with the naked eye, and even better with ordinary binoculars! All you have to do is pull out. On foot, with or without a guide, on horseback or with a covered wagon, during the Night of the Night for example ..
