Bodmin Moor could become an International Dark Sky Park.
The area is being put forward because of its "exceptional night sky" and Cornwall Council is asking people for their views on proposals before bidding for the title.
The council, and Caradon Observatory are holding a month long consultation, and, if their bid is successful the title is comparable to World Heritage Site status.
The Area of Outstanding National Beauty Unit and the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) also support the proposed bid. If there is public support for the bid, the Council will submit it this summer.

Thieves have caused around twelve thousand pounds worth of damage to a historic church in Bodmin as they threw a tombstone through a stained glass window.
The St Petroc Church, which dates back to 1469, was attacked on Wednesday night. Church officials estimate the thieves stole the collection box which contained around only 10 pounds.
Police say they have forensic evidence from the scene and will use that to help identify the culprits.
"Its absolutely terrible. The culprits threw part of an old tombstone through the east window, the main window of the church, just above the alter and climbed through.
They also smashed some of the newly restored reradose, a feature along the east end of the church. We had just restored it at the cost of £12,000 and they have knocked quite a bit of it off.
It was a real feature of the church that was rebuilt just a year ago, it was uncovered as there was a wood panel over it, but we got a grant to restore it, and it was absolutely stunning. Now, it has been damaged. But the worst damage is of the window itself, its unbelievable that someone would do this to a sacred building. When I looked around with the police we saw the hole in the window, and part of a gravestone.
A number of our carved angels were damaged too. All they managed to get away with was about £10, but they caused upwards of £12,000 worth of damage.
To some people nothing is sacred."
"I would like the offenders to know that we have recovered forensic samples from the scene and are submitting them to a lab where we will soon be able to identify you.
So the only thing you can do at this stage to reduce the impact of the burglary is to come forward and present yourself to the police."
