Description:
This stunning ultra high definition panorama, taken by ESO Photo Ambassador Petr Horálek, shows the Milky Way galaxy arching above ESO’s La Silla Observatory in Chile. La Silla is located at the southern edge of the Atacama Desert, from where the observatory’s numerous telescopes observe the night sky — one of the darkest on the Earth — perched 2400 metres above sea level, and so making the most of the unrivalled atmospheric conditions at the site to reveal the cosmos in remarkable detail.
