Flight above the VLT Paranal Observatory

Aerial view of the Paranal Observatory. At the mountain top are seen the large enclosures for the four VLT Unit Telescopes, the (partly subterranean) building of the Interferometric Building (at centre), as well as the foundations for the smaller, moveable telescopes of the VLT Interferometric Array. The VLT Control Building is situated just below the UT1 enclosure (upper right corner of the icon picture). (Video sequences obtained on December 16, 1997).
