The light of night at la Silla

The wonders of the night sky are visible with just a camera in this time lapse video taken at the la Silla Observatory in Chile, ESO's first observatory located at the outskirts of the Chilean Atacama Desert. The arid climate and isolated conditions offer spectacular visibility, making the site perfect for telescopes and astrophotographers alike. The ESO 3.6-metre telescope is prominently visible to the left of the image.
