As seen on the National Geographic News from the dark and transparent sky of the highest point on La Palma, Canary Islands, the central bulge of the Milky Way and the setting Moon are photographed over the Atlantic Ocean. Some of the world’s leading research telescopes are located on this 2400-meter volcanic peak. One of them is the Italian 3.6 meter Telescopio Nazionale Galileo whihc is visible on the lower right of the image.

    An impressive one with two main objects. BTW, I love the series of milk way on the La Palma.
