Mounted image 148: Starry La Silla
The stars rotate around the southern celestial pole during a night at ESO’s La Silla Observatory in northern Chile. The dome in the foreground of the image hosts ESO’s 3.6-metre telescope, home to HARPS, the world’s foremost exoplanet hunter. The rectangular building seen in the lower right contains the 0.25-metre TAROT telescope, designed to react very quickly when a gamma-ray burst is detected.
