ALMA time-lapse 3

Earth's place in space is never more evident than in a video like this. A timelapse of the Chilean sky shows our galaxy, the Milky Way, appearing to rotate above — though, of course, it is the Earth doing the rotation. Most antennas at ALMA have a dish diameter of 12 m, though some, provided by NAOJ, have a size of 7 m. These smaller antennas can be positioned closer together to take more precise measurements of certain phenomena in the Universe.

Such visuals were gathered on the "Fulldome Expedition" of 2016, and could be used in the ESO Supernova Planetarium & Visitor Centre in Garching, Munich.
