A Tree, a Man and the Mesmerising Presence of our Cosmic Home

| | | |

Feeling blessed to live so close to Dark Sky® Alqueva reserve where I can easily reach places like this, places that I love and where pristine skies are still possible to see. On this particular night taken during one of my workshops at the end of Summer, the airglow was visible and painted the background sky with greenish hues. In front of the airglow, a few high clouds announce the proximity of Winter, while Milky Way is straight up to the Zenith, the core is getting low and close to the horizon and in a few weeks no longer will be visible until next Summer. In the foreground, my silhouette as a stargazer stands at the side of a lonely wonderful tree which rises leafy before the majesty presence of our cosmic home.

PT: Sinto-me abençoada por viver tão perto do Dark Sky® Alqueva onde posso chegar facilmente a lugares como este, lugares que me apaixonam e onde ainda é possível disfrutar de um céu pristino. Nesta noite em particular, que decorreu durante um dos meus workshops no final do verão, o airglow era visível e pintava o céu de fundo com tons esverdeados. Diante do airglow, algumas nuvens altas anunciam a proximidade do Inverno, enquanto a Via Láctea sobe em direcção ao zénite, o núcleo vai ficando baixo e próximo ao horizonte e em algumas semanas não será mais visível até ao próximo Verão. Em primeiro plano, está a minha silhueta enquanto observador de estrelas, lado a lado com uma árvore solitária mas que se ergue frondosa diante a grandeza desta paisagem cósmica.
