A paradise for astronomers is here


It’s just the first chapter of the saga Atacama Starry Nights that we show today. Astronomer’s Paradise, already mentioned by National Geographic, is a time-lapse shot at Cerro Paranal, a paradise for astronomers.

Cerro Paranal offers a unique location, since it gives a tremendously dark and transparent sky in the Chilean desert dell’Atacama. Here lies one of the most important telescopes in the world.

The Very Large Telescope (VLT) has already been the subject of another impressive time-lapse video we reviewed.

This video was made from material collected from November 2011 for 14 nights, from 5:30 pm to 8 am.

Thanks to Andrea to reporting it to us.
