Flight above the VLT Paranal Observatory

16 January 1998

We continue the publication of video clips from the Paranal Observatory by showing aerial scenes of the VLT site and an overall view of Unit Telescope 1 in its enclosure. The footage was obtained by the ESO EPR Video Team during a recent mission.

More information is available at the ESO website about the VLT project. Note also that preparations are now being made for the UT1 First Light Event that will occur within a few months.

The EPR video clips -service to visitors to the ESO website was initiated in December 1997 and allows `animated' illustration of the ongoing work at the European Southern Observatory.
