Sunrise from the Roque de Los Muchachos Astrophysical Observatory

April 06, 2021

20210116 0803 Panoramic view of Tenerife and Izaña Observatory

Photographer: Massimo Cecconi
Summary Authors: Massimo Cecconi; Jim Foster

I was greeted by this striking sunrise after a long night of
astronomical observing, on January 16, 2021, at the Roque de Los
Muchachos Astrophysical Observatory ( Canary Islands, Spain). Thanks
to exceptional seeing conditions above the stratus cloud deck,
details on Teide Volcano (12,188 ft or 3,715 m), some 87 mi (140
km) to the northwest, were visible, including the solar towers of the
Izaña Astrophysical Observatory – to the lower right of the summit.
Note that because the atmosphere was so clean (relatively free of
dust and salt particles) on this winter morning, deep red and
orange colors were lacking as the Sun approached the horizon.
