Roque de los Muchachos Observatory La Palma Canary Islands

The Roque de Los Muchachos Observatory is at the top of a volcano above a sea of clouds. We explore the craggy and precipitous footpath that runs around the volcano rim. On the way we glimpse some of the fourteen telescopes from various countries. Roque de Los Muchachos was chosen as an observatory site because it has one of the clearest skies on the planet. The location of the island and its climate makes the cloud act as a natural mirror, blocking light pollution from the towns beneath.
