DescriptionA little more than one year ago, three planets decided to join the sunset show: Jupiter, Venus and of-course, Earth. The dark silhouette of Mount Teide, the highest volcano in the Atlantic ocean, is seen against the bright and colorful twilight after sunset. On the very top of the mountain, a faint streak of light follows the descent of the climbers brave enough to stay up there for sunset.
