After waiting for may days for the good weather to come back to make some observation sessions, and what it is more important, begin taking astrophotographies, the evening of February 14 looked quite promising. We thought that it would be a nice day to make our observing session in the Carretera de la Cabra, but last minute clouds made us change our opinion, so we decided to go to the Dornajo terrace in Sierra Nevada.
Once the van was fully loaded, we took the Sierra Nevada road and in the Centro de Interpretación exit we took the secondary road that goes near the terrace. Big error. The forbidden traffic signal, that we interpreted as "it is not recommended to use this road", was really more important than we initially thought. Half a kilometer up the road, the black asphalt turned into a quite good ice skating rink. The van could not go over the ice for more than five meters when it began to turn, getting crossed in the middle of the road and slipping back. At that point Antonio turned his head to say something to Zerjillo (the co-pilot) when he notices that he is already outside the van watching the show.
