Forest of Bowland dark skies project seeks to promote the wonderful night time world above us to view and amaze ourselves with. Its incredible just what we can see directly above our heads….if only we take the time to look.

The amazing footage taken by by local astronomer Robert Ince shows exactly what I mean. These images are all shot with the local area of our Dark Skies holiday cottages. Not only does the video showcase some fab places to visit during the daytime but what a special sight to witness them on a clear night also. I’m really impressed with this footage, perhaps you can tell, so have a look for your self and be prepared to be amazed.

The Forest of Bowland in Lancashire is declared as being a stargazers paradise – one of England’s darkest areas making it a great destination both by day and night.
