A cloudy sunset

The sun is setting and star become visible, besides the rise of the bright moon. This video, taken from the Paranal Observatory, also shows that it will not become a perfect night for the observing astronomers: Faint clouds appear right after sunset. These clouds raise the change that the images taken that night will not be suitable for science significantly.
