Welcome to the world's first dark sky island...
Sark was designated the world's first dark sky island by the International Dark Sky Association in 2011. SAstroS was set up to protect our unique access to dark skies and showcase the best of Sark's stargazing.
SAstroS operates from the Dachinger Observatory using a 12" Meade LX90 telescope purchased from donations in 2023. The Observatory is open for stargazing sessions on demand, please book a visit with us if you would like to come along.
