Fulldome nighttime timelapse at Observatorio del Roque de los Muchachos

The Observatorio del Roque de los Muchachos in La Palma, Canary Islands, is abuzz with activity in this fulldome timelapse video from ESO Photo Ambassador Alexandre Santerne.

The CANARY laser star guide on the William Herschel Telescope can be seen piercing the night sky, producing an artificial star that can be used to correct for the atmospheric distortion of light.
