Nature reserve car park located next to Goonhilly Earth Station. This location appears to be a fantastic spot to view the dark skies above although may suffer a little from the nearby installation’s light pollution (who are in the process of reducing this!). The nearby satellite dishes could well make for interesting foreground objects for astro-photos as can be seen in the photo credited to Goonhilly Earth Station.
