VLT Laser Guide Star poses for "Traveller" magazine

On the night of 28 August 2011, a photographer for the luxury magazine Conde Nast Traveller captured the laser guide star, one of the visually more impressive icons of the ESO’s Very Large Telescope (VLT) in Paranal, Chile. The striking yellow beam, stretching 90 kilometres into the night sky, and pointing to the centre of the Milky Way was chosen to feature the stunning night sky over the Atacama Desert.
