ESO’s La Silla Observatory video compilation

This video shows drone shots taken at ESO’s La Silla Observatory in November 2022. The video starts with a view of the solar photovoltaic plant that powers the observatory, while the telescopes peek above the mountain in the background. Later, we see detailed views of the various telescopes and support buildings at La Silla, located in the rugged landscape of Chile’s Atacama Desert. The observatory is home to ESO’s first telescopes, including the ESO New Technology Telescope and the ESO 3.6-metre telescope, as well as a number of hosted projects.
