Stargazing & Northern Lights

The Isle of Man has long been recognised as having dark night skies, a valued attribute of the rural character and tranquillity of the Island.

With 26 amazing official dark sky sites dotted around the Island, heading out stargazing is the perfect night time activity for the whole family.

Many astronomical sights can be seen through the naked eye including the Orion Nebula, the Milky Way Galaxy, and the Great Andromeda Galaxy. Even more can be discovered through a telescope or binoculars.

The Northern Lights can also be spotted from the Isle of Man. Normally only seen from northerly locations such as Alaska, Norway and Iceland, the Island is quickly becoming a hotspot for watching this fascinating phenomenon.
