ALMA time-lapse 2

Earth's place in space is never more evident than in a video like this. A timelapse of the Chilean sky shows our galaxy, the Milky Way, appearing to rotate above, though, of course, it is the Earth doing the rotation. Some of the 66 antennas that make up the Atacama Large Millimetre/submillimetre Array (ALMA) flicker as they coordinate to observe the varied phenomena the Universe has to offer.

Such visuals were gathered on the "Fulldome Expedition" of 2016, and could be used in the ESO Supernova Planetarium & Visitor Centre in Garching, Munich.
