Panoramic View of the Proposed Site for ALMA at Chajnantor

Panoramic view of the proposed site for ALMA at Chajnantor. This high-altitude plain (elevation 5000 m) in the Chilean Andes mountains is an ideal site for ALMA. In this view towards the north, the Chajnantor mountain (5600 m) is in the foreground, left of the centre. The perfect cone of the Licancabur volcano (5900 m) on the Bolivian border is in the background further to the left. This image is a wide-angle composite (140° x 70°) of three photos (Hasselblad 6x6 with SWC 1:4.5/38 mm Biogon), obtained in December 1998.
