    Starlight Destination Gran Canaria

    Because of its orographic formation, the mountain area of the island, offers unique conditions for stargazing on Gran Canaria. The main reason for that are the unique weather conditions with little wind and the clean air, in combination with the so called “Panza de Burro” (Donkeys Belly) phenomenon. Due to this phenomenon the clouds reach no higher altitude than around 500 meters, which creates a protective shield from the citylights to allow perfect low light conditions in the mountains.
