Izaña Observatories, Milky Way and the Moon over Teide

25,002.500,00 (IVA tax inc.)


Image captured during my trip to the Canary Islands in the summer 2019 when I travelled to Tenerife Island in order to attend the 355 IAU Congress. I went to Izaña with some friends from Tenerife and I was able to take some images of the Teide Observatory and the spectacular surrounding landscape. The photo I share with you was done the midnight of Tuesday, 9th of July 2019, with a Moon phase of 43% that illuminated the whole landscape. The volcanic origin of the island can be seen both in its reliefs and vegetation (with some endemic species). In the background, vigilant, the Teide volcano, waiting patient for the moon to set behind its edges. Under the Milky Way there is a rosary of telescopes located at the Izaña Observatory. This equipment belongs to the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias, it is located at 2,400m above sea level, and houses some of the most powerful telescopes in the world that study the Sun; we can highlight the Solar Telescope Themis and Gregor, as well as the Solar Telescope Vacuum Telescope (VTT).

Once purchased, you have 24 hours to download the photo. You will receive an email with the download link.

Support my work. If you want to help me continue with my work, please feel free to buy, just for a few pennies, one or several of my images. The price does not reflect the amount of effort involved in each one of the images. Some of them implied weeks, months and even years of hard work. With your purchase I will be able to continue capturing photons of our amazing universe.
