Together with one of our PhD students, Josef Borg, yesterday I held an astronomy night for a local school. For this event, we headed to Dwejra, a dark sky heritage area in Gozo. It turned out to be a memorable evening – like all astronomy nights!
The educational potential of the site is one of the reasons why this place should be protected and its dark night sky preserved. We observed Jupiter & its moons and the Ring Nebula amongst other gems, all amidst the distant cries of Shearwaters flying underneath the stupendous cliffs.
