Horizon at SPECULOOS

Hosted at ESO's Paranal Observatory in the Chilean Atacama Desert, the Search for habitable Planets EClipsing ULtra-cOOl Stars, or SPECULOOS, scans the night sky for Earth-like planets around tiny, dim stars. These four robotic telescopes are highly sensitive to the near-infrared which is what the stars they look for planets around emit.
