A cloudy night

The sun is setting at the Paranal Observatory and almost immediately the large Unit Telescopes of the VLT start to work. However, the night is not perfect. Faint clouds move high above in the sky and will make it difficult for astronomers to get the perfect images from the observatory they normally get within a night.
