Professor Mark Bailey

"Astronomy captures the imagination of children, young and old, as well as others young at heart. A view of the stars and of our Milky Way on a clear night from a Dark-Sky site such as Beaghmore can be an awe-inspiring, sometimes life-changing experience. Bringing the Heavens down to Earth in this way as part of EU-UNAWE encourages global awareness amongst all age groups and highlights an influence that has affected all societies and cultures throughout human history: that is, Earth’s place in space and our shared experience of living under the same sky.”
