A European Antenna Moved to the ALMA OSF at night

A European 12-metre antenna is being positioned at night by the ALMA transporter on one of the pads located outside the main building of the Operations Support Facility (OSF). Once an antenna is assembled and tested by the ALMA partner, it is moved to this area, where it undergoes a second round of tests, before taking its place as part of the ALMA observatory.
