Every sunset on the shores of Lake Alqueva in Portugal is the prelude to a spectacle like few others in Europe. This is the moment when astrophotographer Miguel Claro goes to the observatory to prepare telescopes and cameras to capture the vast blanket of stars at nightfall. 1,100 kilometres away, in Martorell, Carlos Elvira, Head of Lighting Development at SEAT, and his team also work in the utmost darkness to test the lighting systems of each vehicle. The two specialties, astronomy and photometry (light intensity analysis) applied to motoring, have more in common than you might imagine.
