The amazing blood moon which is has loomed over us since Sunday is an beautiful spectacle. Exmoor National Park is listed as one of the best places to see it as we are so far from light pollution here. The park was awarded International Dark Sky Reserve status in 2011. Described as 'A vast black hole of silence' Exmoor is considered a perfect venue for watching the lunar eclipse. On a day where there is no moon, the human eye is able to see about 3,000 stars from this reserve.
