This Time Lapse Video of the Very Large Telescope At Work is the Coolest Thing

There’s very little we can write to preface the imagery below, so we’ll just set the scene and get out of the way. The video below was captured by Stephane Guisard and Jose Francisco Salgado at the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope (VLT) in Chile’s Atacama Desert. And it might make you cry.

What makes this time lapse particularly amazing--because we’ve all seen plenty of time lapse videos of the night sky--is the four telescopes in the foreground. Watching these instruments work against a black background would be endlessly fascinating on its own.


Not much really to say.... except that this is awesome.


Hoping the ATS sky watchers will chime in on this one.

We have so much to learn...especially if we are the only beings that can document the heavens. Lots and Lots of work...

If you loved that, then you'll also love this!!

It just baffles me at how beautiful the universe really is...

This has more stunning shots of the stars in time lapse but also weather and cloud formations... truly epic!
