The morning twilight arrives at La Palma, Canary Islands. In the dark and transparent sky of the mountainous island the rising Milky Way appears with the fading zodiacal light (crossing the Milky Way in an opposite elongation). Planet Saturn is the brighter point in the upper right of the image. Bright star Vega appears on the upper left. Click on the constellation icon above the image to see this view few minutes earlier with dark background sky.
