ZODIACAL LIGHT AND MILKY WAY Taken by Juan Carlos Casado on February 3, 2018 @ Teide National Park, Tenerife (Canary Islands, Spain)

Teide National Park snow-covered, due to a storm of cold and snow, which has lasted several days and has affected all the Canary Islands.
On Teide volcano the bright zodiacal light stands out, which at this time of the year is almost vertical with respect to the horizon, reaching the zenith and located just above Teide.
On the right one can see the Milky Way with Swan constellation and North American nebula standing next to some Teide Observatory (IAC) domes. Also visible is the Andromeda galaxy and just above the double Perseus cluster.
