Chajnantor Plateau

This image of the magnificent Chajnantor Plateau is taken in Ultra High Definition. 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.
