Poster: ALMA's World at Night

This view of the Chajnantor plateau shows the antennas of the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) ranged across the unearthly landscape. Some familiar celestial objects can be seen in the night sky behind them. These crystal-clear night skies explain why Chile is the home of not only ALMA, but also several other astronomical observatories.

This image is part of a panorama that can be seen in the ESO image archive.
