The Canary Islands: A Unique Place for Astronomy

Unique Location

In the heart of the Atlantic, the Canary Islands offer exceptional astronomical conditions due to their privileged location in the middle of the ocean, close to the equator. 

Mountain Spaces

Peaks that rise largely above the Earth's atmosphere reduce atmospheric interference, providing a more stable and clearer view of the sky.

Clear Skies

Its mild and stable climate, with few clouds and low humidity, creates perfect nights for observation.

Teide National Park: A Starlight Destination

The Teide National Park has been distinguished as a Starlight Reserve, an official recognition awarded to places with exceptional night skies, ideal for stargazing.

As a Starlight Reserve, the Teide National Park is committed to preserving the darkness of the sky and atmospheric clarity, minimising light pollution.

Cutting-Edge Observatories

The Canary Islands are home to world-renowned observatories, including the Roque de los Muchachos Observatory and the Teide Observatory. The latter is known for housing the impressive Gregor telescope, one of the most advanced solar telescopes in the world, designed to study the sun's activity in detail.
