Mounted image 108: Dramatic moonset on Cerro Paranal
As the full Moon sets on Paranal Observatory, the Sun is about to rise on the opposite horizon. The Very Large Telescope has finished a long night of observations and telescope operators and night-time astronomers get ready for sleep, while the daytime technicians, engineers and astronomers wake up for a new day of work. Operations never stop at the most productive ground-based astronomical observatory in the world.Credit:
