How special is the night sky at NaDEET?

Very special, so much so, that the night sky above NRNR and NaDEET has just been certified by the International Dark Sky Association as Africa’s first International Dark Sky Reserve, only one of four IDSRs in the world!  To gain Gold Tier IDSR certification, NaDEET took a number of measures to reduce light pollution including the development of special light fittings made from recycled materials.

NaDEET staff show visitors the wonders of the night sky both by naked eye and through a telescope. The threat light pollution poses and how to prevent it are also discussed. See the Night Sky edition of the Bush Telegraph for more information.
