Van Rompuy Visits

Following the Summit of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States–European Union (CELAC–EU) in January 2013, ESO’s Paranal Observatory was honoured with a visit from the President of the European Council, Herman Van Rompuy. The President was taken on a tour of the observatory by Tim de Zeeuw, ESO’s Director General, where he admired the four 8.2-metre telescopes which comprise the Very Large Telescope (VLT), the most advanced optical/infrared telescope in the world. He also toured Paranal’s award-winning Residencia, the observatory’s accommodation and office building.
