Daniel López, a photographer based in the Canary Islands, shot this scene on the morning of May 30 from a perch near Tenerife’s Mount Teide volcano, capturing the otherworldly landscape as the sun rose and the full moon set. The Canary Islands archipelago, off Morocco, is made up of seven volcanic islands. These islands, which are part of the autonomous communities of Spain, are a paradise for tourists but also for astronomers.
In addition to contained light pollution, they enjoy a sunny climate and several peaks conducive to the study of the sky. It is for this reason that two astronomical observatories are installed: the Observatory of Roque de Los Muchachos on the island of Palma and the Observatory of Teide on the island of Tenerife.
