The Milky Way arching over lights of small towns in La Palma, Canary Islands. The image is made from the top of La Palma (2426 m), besides the Observatorio del Roque de los Muchachos, where some of the world’s largest telescopes are located. The central bulge of the Milky Way in the constellations Scorpius and Sagittarius in on the right, Aquila and Cygnus are at left.
