This is a truly gorgeous time-lapsed sequence of the sky filmed recently at El Teide, Spain's highest mountain. If you are in need of some soothing, I highly suggest taking a few minutes out of your busy day to kick back, relax, and watch it. Either listen to the gentle piano music the video's creator uses or turn down the sound and pop in a tune of your choice.

The vidoe is also sure to be of interest to those who are watchers of the sky and stars.

The video's creator writes:

This was filmed between 4th and 11th April 2011. I had the pleasure of visiting El Teide. Spain´s highest mountain @(3718m) is one of the best places in the world to photograph the stars and is also the location of Teide Observatories, considered to be one of the world´s best observatories.

The goal was to capture the beautiful Milky Way galaxy along with one of the most amazing mountains I know El Teide....

...Interestingly enough my camera was set for a 5 hour sequence of the milky way during this time and I was sure my whole scene was ruined. To my surprise, my camera had managed to capture the sandstorm which was backlit by Grand Canary Island making it look like golden clouds. The Milky Way was shining through the clouds, making the stars sparkle in an interesting way.
