Dwejra’s dark sky heritage: the fall of the best site

We live in a small country which is heavily light polluted. Measurements by the Institute of Space Sciences and Astronomy (ISSA) suggest that the Milky Way is observable from less than two per cent of the area of mainland Malta. 

The situation in Gozo is better, undoubtedly aided by the fact that a number of coastal areas had been designated as Dark Sky Heritage Areas (DSHAs). 

One of these sites – the best one of them all – is Dwejra.
