Under the Southern Cross

This photo from the Ultra High Definition Expedition to ESO’s La Silla Observatory in Chile shows the Danish 1.54-metre telescope admiring the starry southern skies. The Southern Cross — one of the most distinctive asterisms — can be seen to the left of the telescope’s open dome, nestled in the plane of the Milky Way.
