Milky Way high in the sky

This unique view of the Milky Way was taken at ESO's Paranal Observatory in Chile. Stretching across the night sky is the bright centre of our Galaxy so clearly visible thanks to Paranal's remote location and the around 300 clear nights the Chilean Atacama Desert hosts each year.
