ESO la Silla Observatory
Produced by the European Southern Observatory (ESO), this short video shows the observatory and work done at La Silla, Chile.
ESO’s La Silla Observatory celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2009. When it began operations, it was the largest astronomical observatory of its time, and it is still one of the most scientifically productive in ground-based astronomy.
