Dark Sky Møn and Nyord is an experience for your senses and can be observed all year round. On a late summer night the Milky Way can be seen as a broad milk-white band of light that stretches all over the sky and disappears behind the Baltic Sea horizon, filled with stars and black dust clouds in between. 

On August nights, you can spend the evening counting shooting star, and in the fall you can observe the Milky Way neighbour, the Andromeda galaxy, like a little foggy cloud in the night sky. Although it’s 2.4 million light years away, it’s easy to see with the naked eye. And in December, the long, dark nights will light up a true firework display of shooting stars.

Even when the sky is totally overcast, the undisturbed darkness can be an unforgettable experience, as it opens up to sounds, aromas and unexpected sensuality, which most of us no longer experience in modern life. 

Embark on a nightwalk with one of our Dark Sky guides, stay at a Dark Sky Certified Accommodation or visit one of the beautiful stargazinng locations.
