View To Pacific Ocean From VLT
Shooting for the stars
The Pacific Ocean below the clouds seen from Cerro Paranal in 2635 m (8645 ft) above sea level.
Cerro Paranal is home to the European Southern Observatory’s (ESO’s) Very Large Telescope (VLT) which was right behind me when shooting this photo.
Originally Cerro Paranal was 29 m (95 ft) higher but the top was blown away to make a flat platform where upon the telescopes were built.
