One of the best things living on Tenerife is the incredibly clear skies we have up in Teide National Park. Being able to drive up at 2300m in less than 45 mins is pure luxury. When you stop the car and switch of the lights the spectacle slowly starts to appear in front of your eyes. I have been up here so many nights but I still get goosebumps every time. Being so high up, far away from light pollution and noise gives you a sense of closeness to the stars which is hard to describe.

Late spring the most spectacular part of the Milky Way slowly becomes visible high up in the sky. The area around the Scorpius constellation with the many nebulas, gases and space dust is truly remarkable too see with your own eyes.

This is Tenerifes most iconic landmark, Roque Cinchado.
