The full Moon sets behind the VISTA Survey Telescope. Contrary to what one may think, this picture is no montage. In order to obtain this effect, the picture was taken with a powerful zoom lens, from a few kilometres away. The VISTA telescope is located in the Paranal area, on a peak close to the main summit.
