Which season is best if you want to see the Milky Way in Denmark?

The best time to see the Milky Way is in late summer and autumn, from August to November. At that time, the Milky Way is still high in the sky in the evening.

In the spring, you have to go out early mornning, around 3 a.m., to see the Milky Way rise before the sun rises.

In the summer, the sky is so bright that it can be difficult to see the Milky Way. However, you can spot it between 1 and 2 at night.

You should choose a moonless night, when it either has not risen yet, or has set already. It's impossible to see the Milky Way when there is a lot of moonlight. You can check the rising and setting times of the Moon in our moon calendar here: https://darkskymoen.dk/en/node/108

Here are some photos of the Milky Way from Dark Sky Park Møn.
