Captured in the top of Madeira island, in Pico do Arieiro, at about 1810 meters high, from left to right, is visible above the horizon and between the passing clouds, the lights coming from neighboring island of Porto Santo. At the right and in the top of the mountain, above the white/yellow dome – a military radar – we can see the region of Celestial Equator, with the dragged stars of the well known constellation of Orion!
