Stars of Scorpius Rising above Anta de Zedes Dolmen


| | | |

Captured in the newest territory of Dark Sky® Vale do Tua, in northern part of Portugal – a new certified Starlight Tourist Destination – is one of the best spots to enjoy archeoastronomy. The image feature a dolmen entitled Anta de Zedes, where in the background is possible to enjoy a rising Milky Way while the brightest and colorful stars of scorpius constellation are shining on the right center. To highlight the color temperature I used in front of the lens a fog filter which gives more diffusion on those stars, something that also can naturally happen when we have high thin clouds on the sky or some fog above the horizon.

PT: Captado no Dark Sky® Vale do Tua, o mais recente Destino Turístico Starlight certificado no Norte de Portugal, é um dos melhores locais para desfrutar da arqueoastronomia. A imagem revela um dolmen intitulado Anta de Zedes, onde ao fundo é possível apreciar uma ascensão da Via Láctea enquanto as estrelas mais brilhantes e coloridas da constelação de Escorpião, brilham no centro direito. Para destacar a temperatura de cor das estrelas, foi usado na frente da lente um fog filter que permite aumentar a difusão nessas estrelas, algo que também pode acontecer naturalmente quando temos nuvens altas e finas no céu ou alguma neblina acima do horizonte.
