Chile: La Silla Observatory


A very special place!

I worked at the European Southern Observatory’s older installation in Chile as a support astronomer between 2000 and 2004.  These photos were taken in 2015 when a few of us had a mini-reunion in one of our favourite places.   It was awesome being back on the mountain – but sad as well.  I think all of us hold a very special place in our heart for La Silla Observatory and would come back in a heartbeat.
