Colour before the dark

Located high on the top of a Chilean mountain, ESO’s Paranal Observatory benefits from stunning vistas of the surrounding Atacama Desert and — more importantly! — clear and beautiful skies. This photograph of the site shows an especially colourful scene, as the setting Sun paints the sky with beautiful hues of pink, orange, purple, blue, and yellow.
