Fig. 1 - S1 (08.09.2017) - The planet Ahch-To, home of Luke Skywalker, is 12.5 km from the nearest Irish coast.
This Star Wars environment was filmed on the island of Skellig Michael, also known as Great Skellig. Together with Little Skellig, it forms the Skellig Islands archipelago.
Fig. 2 - S2-L1C (02.06.2023) - The home of Luke was filmed in the Augustinian monastic settlement, near the top of the second summit.
This monastery, best known for his beehive shape, earned it World Heritage status in 1996.
Fig. 3 - COP-DEM GLO-30 - Skellig Michael rises to an altitude of 218 m. The island is distinctive for its steep slopes.
The relief is dominated by two peaks: the South Peak, where the hermitage is located (218 m above sea level), and the Northeast Peak, where the monastery is built (185 m above sea level). These two peaks lie on either side of a 130 m high depression known as Christ's Saddle.
