Time Lapse Clouds and Sky Over the Canary Islands

After an earthquake in Spain last Wednesday, I posted this important blog -- Canary Islands, Atlantic Ocean Mega-tsunami Theory -- especially for readers who could be affected. I remember this event from a previous simulation and feel it will probably be part of the closing of the program. It also seems to be connected to the alleged fall of Atlantis ... once upon a time in another simulation.

Speaking of the Canary Islands, NASA posted a really cool video Monday called Time Lapse Clouds and Sky Over the Canary Islands. I loved the lenticular clouds.

El Cielo de Canarias / Canary sky - Tenerife

Explanation: If you could sit back and watch clouds and the sky move all night and day, what might you see? One answer from the island of Tenerife, captured over the course of the year, includes sequences that are not only breathtaking but instructive. Visible in the above time-lapse movie include clouds that seem to flow like water, a setting sun that shows numerous green flashes, the Milky Way Galaxy rising behind towering plants, a colorful double fogbow, lenticular clouds that appear stationary near their mountain peaks, and colorful moon coronas. The above video was shot solely from the Teide National Park on Tenerife in the Canary Islands of Spain, off the north west coast of Africa. The video also features an unusual type of plant in several scenes -- can you identify it?
