I love it when I can pause in my commute to the observatory for a quick look at the Caldera. My favourite is when it’s got a few fluffy little clouds in there: it’s looks as big as it is, five miles across.

Sheila came to La Palma with a six month contract and has stayed 24 years so far. She used to work as a software engineer at the observatory, but now she's a writer and Starlight guide.
