Armazones in Atacama

By: Serge Brunier


Region: Americas

Site: Cerro Armazones - Chile


A major preference of southern sky compared to the northern view is how the center of the Milky Way rises overhead with a splendid view of the central bulge and disk of our own galaxy. Here the scene is photographed in Atacama desert, one of the darkest places of our planet. The site is Cerro Armazones in Antofagasta Region of Chile, which is a tentative location for a future generation giant telescope. Serge Brunier/
