Over the  rocky peaks in Teide National Park on Tenerife Island of the Spanish Canary Islands off the northwestern coast of Africa. The volcanic landscape  features old island summits and is sometimes used as a testbed for instruments on future Martian rovers. The light of nearbye civilization can be seen in the bottom corner of the shot. The red ring in Orion's belt is Barnards Loop. To achive this level of clarity the camera was over exposed.
