Dark skies in the Spanish Pyrenees


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

just returned from a holiday in Berdun, northern Spain.

All I can say is that the night skies were superb - saw the Milky Way on 10 of the 14 nights I was there.

Sadly I only had a short time each night to do some imaging - with an AstroTrak - but I can definitely recommend this place for Astronomy = shame that its a ~150Km drive from the nearest Airport [Zarragoza or Biaritz].

The Milky Way was visible from 30 minutes after sunset and I found a place only 0.5Km walk from the town centre that was dark enough to observe or take images.

hope you can get there sometime soon.

Ooh, sounds nice Rob!!

Head to Spain and Portugal next month for 5 weeks, and have 3 nights at Zaragoza. Alas, not driving, but hopeing for some dark skies to peer at those confusing Northern Hem constellations. :p
