October - VISTA before sunset
Here VISTA’s enclosure appears in front of a seemingly endless mountain range, which stretches to the horizon. As sunset approaches, the mountains cast longer shadows, which slowly cover the brownish tones that colour the magnificent landscape that surrounds Paranal. Soon, the Sun
will drop below the horizon, and the tele- scopes at Paranal will start another night of observations.
