State’s sky to get heritage status

THE sky above New South Wales is to be given heritage status by the National Trust.

The National Trust of NSW is set to classify both the day and night sky above the state as worthy of preservation.

National Trust NSW president Zeny Edwards said the sky viewed from NSW had extraordinary aesthetic, historic, social and scientific significance for all Australians.

The move was timely with Earth Hour on Saturday, when switching off city lights would allow the sky to be seen clearly, he said.

What on earth is she on?
