La Silla SEST time-lapse

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. The now decommissioned Swedish-ESO Submillimetre Telescope (SEST) at ESO's La Silla Observatory reflects the wonders of the Universe off its polished surface.

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