APOD: fantastic time lapse of clouds and sky over the Canary Islands

Time lapse videos seem to be really in fashion as of late, but if directors keep editing videos like the one captioned right below you won’t ever see me complain. Featured in today’s Astronomy Picture of the Day by NASA, Daniel L√≥pez time-lapsed flowing clouds, a setting sun that shows numerous green flashes, the Milky Way Galaxy rising, a colorful double fogbow, lenticular clouds that appear stationary near their mountain peaks, a mountain landscape towered by a colorful rainbow and some other hidden gems which I’ll leave for you to discoverer further.

The video was shot solely from the Teide National Park on Tenerife in the Canary Islands of Spain, off the north west coast of Africa. If you found this interesting, you should learn more about the various types of clouds.
