ALMA time-lapse 3
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. Most antennas at ALMA have a dish diameter of 12 m, though some, provided by NAOJ, have a size of 7 m. These smaller antennas can be positioned closer together to take more precise measurements of certain phenomena in the Universe.
