Goonhilly Earth Station Nature Reserve

Goonhilly Earth Station Nature Reserve

Goonhilly Downs, Helston, Cornwall, TR12 6LQ

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.
