In this June, 2019 view from Vicuña, south of the Atacama Desert Plateau, Chile, home to ESO’s Very Large Telescope Complex, we stand in awe of the Milky Way’s Galactic Center front and center. Brilliant Jupiter is ‘below’ (east) of red-orange Antares and the Rho Ophiuchi Cloud Complex with the globular cluster Messier (M)-4 ‘above’ (west) of Antares.
Continuing east into Sagittarius, we encounter many favorites of the summer sky such as the beautiful open cluster Messier (M)-7, Messier (M)-8, the Lagoon Nebula, Messier (M)-20, the Trifid Nebula and the beautiful open cluster Messier (M)-21, to name a few.
Happy Sunday to you all! Remember to always look up 🌌😌 pic.twitter.com/HGu6DBHoYe
