Join us on a dark sky tour.
Join a tour of the Dark Sky Park Møn & Nyord, if you are interested in experiencing the special darkness we enjoy here.
It is very exciting to experience the wonders of the night sky on clear nights in our internationally renowned Dark Sky Park.
The tours are introduction courses in astronomy. There is no requirement of previous knowledge, just warm clothing and an interest in the night sky.
We can look at the stars using our naked eyes, we can use special binoculars, a small telescope, or a larger telescope. Depending on what is on display at any given time, we can look at the Milky Way, star clusters, planets, nebulae or galaxies. All things that are almost impossible to see from a city, because of the ever increasing light pollution there.
I also teach courses in astrophotography, and we can make photos of the Milky Way, or selected smaller objects of the night sky. If you like, we can include you in a milky way photo, too.
Whatever your interest, I will contribute with my knowledge of what's going on in the sky.
I can also arrange walks in the forests and meadows, to experience the special feeling of being in a really dark place. The augmentation of the other senses, hearing the sounds animals make at night, and just be at peace without the constant light of the city.
On clear nights, we can navigate using the stars instead of a compass.
There are many options for accommodation on Møn.
I recommend Tiendegarden Bed & Breakfast, which is located on the eastern part of the island.
Another great option is to stay at Residens Møen, which is a beautiful hotel in the town of Stege, with a nice view to the sea.
Tours can be conducted in English, Danish and French.
Please contact me if you are interested in a tour, let me know what interests you, and we we can arrange for a trip into the darkness of Møn by night.
In 2020, the comet C/2020 F3 Neowise was a big attraction. It was easily seen from Møn.
The meadows around the lighthouse are beautiful. Here the lighthouse is seen after sunset, when the Milky Way becomes visible.
