January – Cosmic fireball above ALMA

This beautiful image, taken during a time-lapse set at the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) is a dramatic photo from the ESO Ultra HD Expedition. Some of the 66 high-precision antennas that comprise ALMA are visible here, with dishes pointed aloft, studying the cold clouds in interstellar space, and peering deep into the past at our mysterious cosmic origins
