The Full Moon and the Magellanic Clouds over ALMA (time-lapse)

Loading player...

Night time-lapse video of the ALMA antennas performing observations in the Chajnantor plain. As the sky appears to rotate clockwise, the Full Moon disappears beneath the horizon and the Magellanic Clouds take the spotlight appearing in the upper left edge of the image. The flashes on the ground are the car lights of the guards patrolling at the ALMA Array Operations Site.  ALMA, the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array is the largest astronomical project in existence and is a truly global partnership between the scientific communities of East Asia, Europe and North America with Chile. ESO is the European partner in ALMA.
