La Silla Danish 1.54-metre telescope time-lapse

Earth's place in space is never more evident than in a video like this. A time-lapse of the Chilean sky shows our galaxy, the Milky Way, appearing to rotate above, though, of course, it is the Earth doing the rotation. The Danish 1.54-metre telescope at ESO's La Silla observatory can be seen gently rotating as it follows an object in the cosmos.

Such visuals were gathered on the "Fulldome Expedition" of 2016, and could be used in the ESO Supernova Planetarium & Visitor Centre in Garching, Munich.
