Furthermore, it is the best site for astronomical observations. The restaurant was not allowed to place a canopy, lights, sign, chairs and tables at the site by the PA in 2017. The overturning of this ruling will now increase light pollution, which will not allow astronomical observation. Furthermore, it may affect wild birds which are particularly sensitive to light and noise.WhatsApp SharePrintlast_img
