The image of the Milky Way and of millions of stars that leave the observers breathless was confirmed in 2008 by Slovenian astrographers Mikuz Herman and Andrej Mohar, who announced that Lastovo is the location with the most beautiful starry sky in Europe thanks to the distance from the mainland and all possible pollution. For this purpose, on the island of Lastovo all public lighting has been replaced by ecological lighting with 0% emissions to the sky. Lastovo has one of the darkest skies in Europe and, in addition to the Milky Way, which can be seen with the naked eye, it is possible to see other galaxies with a weaker telescope.
