2 Isle Of Man is one of the finest places for stargazing in the British Isles and is located in the Irish Sea between the United Kingdom and Ireland. On an immensely clear night the Orion Nebula can be spotted with the naked eye alone which stands 1500 light years away in the Milky Way Galaxy and to see the Northern Lights.
