PT:  Uma paisagem cénica captada no final da temporada de verão na maravilhosa região dos Canais do Guadiana, em Mértola, no território do Dark Sky® Alqueva, mostra uma imagem em mosaico de um arco galáctico sobre as montanhas e canais de água do rio Guadiana. O próprio arco apresenta, da esquerda para a direita, uma “Via Láctea de verão” que está gradualmente desaparecendo no horizonte ocidental devido à época do ano. No alto do céu, perto do limite superior central, está a galáxia de Andrómeda, enquanto no lado direito do arco, no céu oriental, a “Via Láctea de Inverno” está começando a aparecer com a constelação de Auriga e Taurus brilhando intensamente. Enquanto as estrelas do Triângulo de Verão estão a desaparecer – lado esquerdo do céu, o aglomerado de estrelas azuladas Pleiades está gradualmente a aparecer, para deslumbrar os observadores ao redor do hemisfério norte.
