April - VISTA’s cosmic view

The Visible and Infrared Survey Telescope for Astronomy (VISTA) is located at ESO’s Paranal Observatory in Chile. The extreme altitude and arid climate make for cloudless skies and excellent viewing conditions. VISTA observes at infrared wavelengths, using an extremely sensitive three-tonne camera. The telescope detects light from very distant sources in the Universe, producing both stunning images and ground-breaking scientific results. VISTA is dwarfed by the sheer majesty of the Universe, as demonstrated by the kaleidoscopic Milky Way arching across this panorama.
