|Scotland’s Galloway Forest Park is the first International Dark Sky Park in the United Kingdom and one of only two in Europe. Galloway Forest Park and Hungary’s Zselic National Landscape Protection Area were announced as Dark Sky Parks at IDA’s Annual General Meeting in November 2009. This breathtaking photograph by James Hilder, a member of the UK’s Campaign for Dark Skies, showcases the phenomenal views from Galloway.||Dave Wymer’s photograph is a four hour exposure on Kodak E200 slide film showing the North Star, Polaris, in the center. Exposures this long would never be possible without the dark skies of Cherry Springs State Park in Pennsylvania, USA.|
