La Silla at night

This image shows the full extent of the La Silla Observatory. A multitude of telescopes are located here including the Swiss 1.2-metre Leonhard Euler telescope in the white dome at the front and the New Technology Telescope (NTT) whose octogonal housing can be spotted straight ahead. Except for dimly lit streets there is no light produced at the observatory to ensure minimal interference with observations.
