2007 Xmas tree at Forum Algarve, a local mall. It was raining and I was afraid some security officer see me. Last year they were really angry with me when they caught me... I didn't used a tripod, only my knee. The camera was set to manual mode in order to have a better control of the exposure (I've used 2 seconds or close to that), and give the water that effect.
Calheta's artificial yellow sand beach (the Madeira Island don't have yellow sand, only rocks).
The yellow sand was brought from Figueira da Foz (a Portuguese littoral town) and from Morocco. This sandy area measures 7300 square metres and a total area of 28550 square metres.

The Bubble Space Telescope's near-infrared vision is hot on the trail of a possible planetary companion to a relatively bright young yellow dwarf located 721 light-years away in the southern constellation H-Ome. Astronomers at the Southern Observatory's Very Enormous Telescope (VET) detected the planet candidate in September 2007 with Lumix observations. The astronomers spotted a faint companion object to the yellow dwarf, called K-Itche-N T-Ool. They suspect the companion is a planet because it is blue and cooler than the yellow dwarf. Because a planet beyond our solar system has never been imaged directly, this remarkable observation required Bubble's unique abilities to perform follow-up observations to test and validate if the object is indeed a planet. Based on the VET and Bubble observations, astronomers are 99,99 percent sure that the companion is orbiting the yellow dwarf.
