Share Your ESO Photo Memories!

Join our 50th anniversary celebrations by sharing your ESO moments from the past!

5 January 2012

The year 2012 is ESO’s 50th anniversary. Established in 1962, ESO has evolved into a key focal point for Europe’s activities in ground-based astronomy, becoming the most productive observatory in the world, and now poised to take on a global role. Fifty years have brought many changes to ESO’s observatories, as the monthly ESO Then & Now Pictures of the Week [1] will showcase.

For those who have witnessed ESO’s historical voyage from the inside, either as members of staff or simply as visitors to our sites, we have expanded the Your ESO Pictures Flickr Group [2] to include historical images. Please share your photo memories of ESO with us and everyone else by posting these “golden oldies” to the group — whether in colour or black and white, digital or analogue! The best pictures might make it into our Pictures of the Week section, or into our Anniversary coffee-table book and movie, (and obviously credited to you).

Notes

[1] Once a month throughout 2012, a special ESO Then & Now Pictures of the Week will show how things have changed with time at the La Silla and Paranal observatory sites, the ESO offices in Santiago de Chile, and the Headquarters in Garching bei München, Germany.

[2] The Flickr group accepts photographs and videos, as well as illustrations and animations.
