Airglow in Spain

Sérgio Conceição from Elvas, Portugal

The Milky Way is accompanied by the pale light of airglow in this panorama of the pier at Vila Nueva del Fresno in Spain. Airglow — the aurora-like phenomenon of persistent luminescence in the upper atmosphere — is rare in this area of Spain, the imager reports. This is a mosaic of ten 240-second exposures taken with a Canon EOS R6 and a 15mm lens at f/2.8 and ISO 640.
