Filmed by Terje Sorgjerd, at El Tiede, the volcano that dominates where we live.

Many a time, me and Mrs. Ear have been taken visitors up to El Tiede to witness the show of millions of stars coming out soon after sunset.  Satellites, shooting stars, comets are easily visible to the naked eye up there.  We like to hang by the approach road to the the Izañi obervatory, and because there isn’t much traffic at night, we can lie on our backs in the middle of the road at be stunned at the clarity and sheer number of stars on show.  Highly recommended for any visitor.
