ALMA and Chajnantor

This video clip about the ALMA project contains two sequences. The first shows a panoramic scan of the Chajnantor plain from approx. north-east to north-west. The Chajnantor mountain passes through the field-of-view and the perfect cone of the Licancabur volcano (5900 m) on the Bolivian border is seen at the end.

The second is a 52-sec animation with a change of viewing perspective of the array and during which the antennas move in unison. For convenience, the clip is available in two MPEG files of different sizes. There is no audio.
