The Milky Way sets behind the VLT as the moon rises

The European Southern Observatory ( was kind enough to allow me to visit the Paranal Observatory in July 2013 to photograph the site at night. This is my favorite image from the time I spent there, including each of the VLT unit telescopes, the Milky Way, and the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds.
