A curtain of stars surrounds the 3.58-metre New Technology Telescope (NTT) in this new Ultra High Definition photograph from the ESO Ultra HD Expedition . It was captured on the first night of shooting at ESO’s La Silla Observatory, which sits at 2400 metres above sea level on the outskirts of the Chilean Atacama Desert.
Visible to the left of the Milky Way is the bright orange star Antares at the heart of Scorpius (The Scorpion). Saturn can be seen as the brightest point to the upper left of Antares and Alpha and Beta Centauri glow in the upper right of the image. The Southern Cross (Crux) and the Coalsack dark nebula are also visible looming above Alpha and Beta Centauri.

Anonymous asked: How do you get tumblr pro? What's so great about it?
Well, I just got a pizza sent to my door because of it and I’m pretty sure I have a massage and yoga class scheduled at 4 and 3, respectively, now because of it. Viva la Pro.
oh hey, I still exist.
My phone makes me look illiterate sometimes and won’t let me edit what I already typed. Thanks a lot.
