October - The Milky Way rising over the Residencia
This beautiful image features the Milky Way rising over the Residencia at ESO’s Paranal Observatory, which can be seen on the top of the mountain in the distance. Paranal Observatory hosts several world-class telescopes, including the Very Large Telescope and the Visible and Infrared Survey Telescope for Astronomy.
The Residencia is a home away from home for the astronomers, engineers, technicians and other visitors to Paranal. Known as an “oasis for astronomers”, the building was featured in the James Bond film “Quantum of Solace” in 2008.Credit:
