Cover image description: In this photo the ESO Very Large Telescope (VLT) is observing the region around the supermassive black hole at the Milky Way’s centre. The picture was taken from inside the dome of one of the VLT’s Unit Telescopes as it uses its adaptive optics system to project an artificial star into the Earth’s upper atmo- sphere. This laser is used as a reference point to correct for the atmospheric distor- tion of light, allowing for a dramatic increase in image clarity.
