Through the night
Time-lapse video of the stars moving through the sky during a night above the La Silla observatory. Here the Milky Way plane sets parallel to the horizon and zodiacal light can clearly be seen.
At an altitude of 2400m in the outskirts of the Chilean Atacama Desert, this location has over 300 clear nights per year, making it an ideal spot for ESO's first observatory.Credit:
