A VISTA on the VLT

This time-lapse video shows the night falling on ESO's VLT as seen from the VISTA telescope.

VISTA, or the Visible and Infrared Survey Telescope for Astronomy, is housed at Paranal, on the peak adjacent to the one hosting the VLT, and shares the same exceptional observing conditions.

As the night proceeds, the Milky Way and other wonders of the southern sky make their appearance on top of the observatories.
