In this Starry sky full of trails we can see the different colors of each star, many of them from the Scorpius constellation, The strong path at the right side of the image, comes from the planet Venus.  Below the horizon, we found an ocean of clouds, located inside the Caldera and blocking part of the small light pollution coming  from Santa Cruz de La Palma. The rocky silhouette is part of Roque de Los Muchachos, where stands a huge complex with the some of the largest telescopes in the world.
