Shooting for the "Europe to the Stars"

This image was taken during shooting for the Europe to the Stars movie, celebrating ESO’s 50th anniversary. Sunset at the platform of the Very Large Telescope is always a very special moment. To capture this moment on video, the presenter of the movie Dr J, aka Dr Jochen Liske was asked to walk across the platform. To his left two of the Auxiliary Telescopes are visible and on the right, UT1 of the VLT can be seen. This shot was one of the final sequences taken at Paranal, since the later shoots were filmed at the ALMA Observatory.
