VLT at Paranal

ESO-operated Very Large Telescope (VLT) is based at the Cerro Paranal site in the Atacama Desert of northern Chile. It is the world's most advanced optical instrument, consisting of four Unit Telescopes with main mirrors of 8.2 metres diameter each, and four smaller Auxiliary Telescopes. The typically clear sky will be perfect for viewing later.
