Joaquín is coming to Portugal and Spain. Teide volcano has acreted fresh air, shrouding herself on clouds. It is the volcanic cooling system I have observed and described in detail this summer. This means Teide will have a say in Joaquin’s life and path, as she has become a high pressure vortex.
It did’t take long! The only-the-sun photos I took before Teide’s they are always different so I share both. 30 minutes after:
I think I can detect a colour hue, in some of the images, which is teluric electricty of the kind we know as earthquake lights. Teide’s “sombrero” is, I’ve realised, a milder version of cloud bubbles like nuke fungus, ignited in bright colours, recently seen in Chile and Costa Rica, related to earthquake and volcanic dynamics. I’ve been seeing this phenomenon since 1995, over the mountain tops of Gran Canaria and las year someone took a photo in which the sky of La Isleta, north of the same island, was sprayed with little coloured cotton wool stains. This was end of June. It is not spectacular if you don’t love nature and art.
