I was hiking with a colleague, trying to reach Puig de Massanella (1367 m.) to enjoy the sunset from the top. It is the second highest elevation of Mallorca’s island, in the Balearic arhipelago (Spain), Mediterranean sea. Sometime before reaching the top, near Coll des Prat (1200 m. high), we decided to make a pause to see the sunset over the sea. Then I spotted this distant mountain silhouette on the continent over the horizon, all the way over the sea, perfectly aligned with the sun disc, 276 km. away. This was a totally unexpected ephemeris. I managed to take some pictures with my modest zoom (300mm.) which I publish in this article, together with a map and some simulations made in Ulrich Deuschle’s website.
