Milky Way Rising above Alqueva in a Panoramic Scene

| | |

The image shows the Arch of Milky Way rising during my annual astrophotography workshop held in May. The group of busy photographers are enjoying the wonders of the sky in the Northern Hemisphere while shooting at the same time, in Dark Sky® Alqueva Reserve, Portugal. Summer Triangle, an asterism composed by the stars Vega (from Lyra constellation), Deneb (from Cygnus), and Altair (from Aquila), are visible relatively low and close to the left center of this panoramic scene. Below Deneb, a bright red emission nebula known as North America, is visible in violet hues, while in the opposite direction of the sky, the core of Milky Way galaxy is featuring many more red emission nebulae coming from deep sky objects like Lagoon, Trifid or Eagle nebula. In the foreground, the calm water of Alqueva lake works as a perfect mirror, reflecting the bright colors of the stars and the dusty center of the galaxy.

PT: A imagem mostra o Arco da Via Láctea enquanto nasce e se torna visível durante o mês de Maio, durante o meu workshop anual de astrofotografia no Alqueva. O grupo de fotógrafos atarefados por entre as luzes das câmaras e dos leds vermelhos, aprecia as maravilhas do céu acima da Reserva Dark Sky® Alqueva. O Triângulo de Verão, um asterismo composto pelas estrelas Vega (da constelação Lyra), Deneb (constelação Cygnus) e Altair (constelação Aquila), é visível relativamente baixo e próximo ao centro esquerdo desta cena panorâmica. Abaixo de Deneb, uma nebulosa de emissão vermelha brilhante conhecida como Nebulosa América do Norte, é visível em tons de violeta, enquanto na direção oposta do céu, o núcleo da Via Láctea revela muitas mais nebulosas de emissão vermelhas provenientes de objetos do céu profundo como a Lagoa, a Trífide ou Nebulosa da Águia. Em primeiro plano, as águas calmas da Grande Lago Alqueva funcionam como um espelho perfeito, reflectindo as cores brilhantes e vibrantes das estrelas e do centro empoeirado da galáxia.
