Description
English: The Milky Way arches across this 360-degree panorama of the night sky above the Paranal Observatory, home of ESO’s Very Large Telescope. The Moon is just rising and the zodiacal light shines above it, while the Milky Way stretches across the sky opposite the observatory. To the right in the image and below the arc of the Milky Way, two of our galactic neighbours, the Small and Large Magellanic Clouds, can be seen. The open telescope domes of the world’s most advanced ground-based astronomical observatory are all visible in the image: the four smaller 1.8-metre Aŭiliary Telescopes that can be used together in the interferometric mode, and the four giant 8.2-metre Unit Telescopes. The image was made from 37 individual frames with a total exposure time of about 30 minutes, taken in the early morning hours.
Français : La voie lactée parcours ce panorama à 360° du ciel nocturne pris sur la plate forme du Paranal, occupée par le Very Large Telescope de l'ESO. La lune vient de se lever et la lumière zodiacale est visible juste au dessus d'elle. Sur la droite, sous la voie lactée, on distingue nos deux compagnons galactiques, les Nuages de Magellan. L'observatoire est constitué de 8 dômes, tous visibles ici: Les quatre petits abritent les télescopes auxiliaires de 1,8 mètre qui peuvent être utilisés en mode interférométrique. Les quatre grands dômes abritent quatre télescopes géants de 8,2 mètres d'ouverture. Image réalisée en assemblant 37 clichés réalisés dans les petites heures du matin.
