Antennae in the Night

A handful of antennae form the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) are lit up a ghostly green against the night sky. ALMA has a total of 66 antennae which sit atop the Chajnantor plateau in the Chilean Andes studying light from some of the coldest objects in the Universe.
