A view of Paranal at sunset from Armazones

 

The above picture shows Cerro Paranal, home to the flagship Very Large Telescope, at sunset, as seen from Cerro Armazones. On the E-ELT Site Selection Advisory Committee's final short list for the recommended site, Armazones is also the committee’s preferred site, because it has the best balance of sky quality across all aspects and can be operated in an integrated fashion with the existing Paranal Observatory.
