Chajnantor Plateau

This image of the magnificent Chajnantor Plateau is taken in Ultra High Definition quality using a 4K camera (the original video is here). The glittering clear skies are captured in crisp, breathtaking quality as they dance high above the rocky contours of the Chilean Andes below — a glimpse into the stunning Ultra HD footage of Chile produced by the ESO Ultra HD Expedition team. Ultra HD adds a new dimension to these striking contrasts which provide perfect astronomical viewing conditions for the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) to study the distant, cold Universe.
