ALMA time-lapse 1

Earth's place in space is never more evident than in a video like this. A timelapse of the Chilean sky shows our galaxy, the Milky Way, appearing to rotate above — though, of course, it is the Earth doing the rotation. One of the 66 antennas that make up the Atacama Large Millimetre/submillimetre Array (ALMA) fills the foreground, against a field of others bathed in an artificial green glow.

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