Milky Way and Andromeda Galaxy Shinning above Lagoa do Fogo in Azores

| | |

Captured literally in middle of Atlantic Ocean, in the island of São Miguel, Azores, Portugal, the image reveals a wide vertical panorama taken around midnight from Lagoa do Fogo (Lake of Fire).The blue lake is located at 575 meters above the sea level – it is about 2 km long and 1 km wide – filling the ground of an extinct crater, whose caldera was formed during an eruption in 1563. In the background, a winter sky shows the white light of Milky Way above the mountains while the faint diffuse oblong shape of Andromeda Galaxy is shinning high in the center. Bluish star cluster of Pleiades, is visible above the horizon while Summer Triangle is touching the upper edge of this panoramic scene.

PT: Captada literalmente em pleno Oceano Atlântico, na ilha de São Miguel, Açores, Portugal, a imagem revela um amplo panorama vertical captado por volta da meia-noite a partir da Lagoa do Fogo. Esta lagoa azul está localizada a 575 metros acima do nível do mar – tem cerca de 2 km de comprimento e 1 km de largura – enchendo o solo de uma cratera extinta, cuja caldeira foi formada durante uma erupção em 1563. Em pano de fundo, um céu de Inverno mostra a luz súbtil e esbranquiçada da Via Láctea erguendo-se acima das montanhas enquanto uma forma oblonga difusa proveniente da Galáxia de Andrómeda brilha ao alto no centro da imagem. O aglomerado azulado das Pleiades é visível acima do horizonte enquanto o Triângulo do Verão se desvanece no extremo superior deste cenário panorâmico.
