Caption: Milky Way over Cerro Paranal Observatory. Sunset view over the road (bottom) leading to the Cerro Paranal Observatory in Chile. The planets Venus (brighter object) and Mercury appear in conjunction at the horizon at lower right. At left are the two bright stars Alpha and Beta Centauri. At top right, the band of stars and nebulae forming the southern Milky Way has begun to appear in the fading twilight. Cerro Paranal, the location of some of the world's leading telescopes, is at an altitude of 2600 metres in the Atacama Desert.
