La Silla soon after Sunset

The splendours of the southern sky can truly be appreciated from La Silla, ESO's first observatory site. The band of the Milky Way, including the central region of our galaxy, stretches across the sky with a myriad of stars crossed by dark lanes of dust. The MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope is seen in the foreground.
