The strong airglow can be seen above the horizon in this panoramic view captured in the top of Madeira island, in Pico do Arieiro, at about 1810 meters high. Above the green pale light shines the Milky Way between the passing clouds. At the right top of the mountain, above the white/yellow dome – a military radar – shines the well known winter constellation of Orion and a further high to the left, stands the open cluster Pleiades (M45).

Canon 60Da – ISO2000 Exp. 30 Secs. 11mm at f/2.8.
