The cover of the 2014 ESO Calendar

This spectacular image of the Carina Nebula was captured by the VLT Survey Telescope at ESO’s Paranal Observatory in Chile and forms the cover of the 2014 ESO Calendar. The calendar itself is packed full of images of the cosmos as well as pictures of the ESO telescopes in the desolate landscapes of the Atacama Desert. The individual pages of the calendar can be viewed here.
