Mayo Dark Sky Park joins “Half the Park is after Dark” series by Tyler Nordgren

​At the 2020 virtual Mayo Dark Sky Festival we were thrilled to launch this beautiful artwork by Artist and Astronomer Dr. Tyler Nordgren.  

Wild Nephin National Park becomes Mayo Dark Sky Park at night and so “Half the Park is After Dark” (trade marked by Tyler Nordgren); is a key message for our park. This is the first commission outside of the USA to have permission to use the tagline.

The image depicts the Milky Way over one of our signature Dark Sky viewing points; Claggan Mountain Coastal Trail.

We were thrilled to include Tyler Nordgren on our Virtual Dark Sky Festival event and you can find out more on his fascinating work as an astronomer and artist is recorded and available on our community YouTube Channel here:

Please note that copies of this poster are not on general sale, although we do hold a small stock for in person visitors to the Mayo Dark Sky Festival event (held in November). We do not have a gift shop, or facilities to despatch mail order.
