A Goat and the Summer Triangle Announces the Arrival of Summer Sky


| | |

Captured close to the morning Twilight from Pampilhosa da Serra – in the heart of a new starlight destination created in center of Portugal, called Dark Sky Aldeias do Xisto – the image shows in the foreground a piece of art made by Eduardo Teodoro with the silhouette of a Charnequeira goat, an autochthonous goat breed from the Schist Villages. The real animal has a reddish brown fur with curved horns and has been accompanying locals since immemorial times. As a symbiotic relationship between man, animal and the night environment, the silhouette is featured against a starry sky between the stars of Summer Triangle with Deneb (Cygnus), Vega (Lyra) and Altair (Aquila) shining in the background sky with the path of Milky Way visible above the hills, announcing the arrival of summer sky in the northern hemisphere.

PT: Captada recentemente na Pampilhosa da Serra, no coração de um novo destino Starlight criado no centro de Portugal, chamado Dark Sky Aldeias do Xisto, a imagem revela em primeiro plano uma obra de arte feita por Eduardo Teodoro com a silhueta de uma Cabra Charnequeira, uma raça caprina autóctone das Aldeias do Xisto. O animal real tem uma pelagem castanha avermelhada e cornos inclinados, tendo companhado os habitantes locais desde tempos imemoriais. Como uma relação simbiótica entre homem, animal e o ambiente noturno, a silhueta é apresentada contra um céu estrelado entre as estrelas do triângulo de Verão, com Deneb (constelação do Cisne), Vega (constelação da Lira) e Altair (constelação da Águia) brilhando em pano de fundo contra o caminho da Via Láctea visível acima das colinas, anunciando a chegada do céu de verão ao hemisfério norte.
