This is the ESOcast! Cutting-edge science and life behind the scenes at ESO, the European Southern Observatory. Episode 85: Chile Chill 7 – “Visitors to the Desert” Chile’s Atacama Desert is one of the driest places in the world It’s paradise for the professional astronomers who use ESO’s telescopes Some of the world’s most powerful instruments for astronomical research are here Although it’s an inhospitable place, many visitors come to this magical part of the world Here people can stand before a doorway to the Universe Watching the sunset and waiting for night to fall The astonishing night skies add their own magic to the scientific studies carried out here Photographer Babak Tafreshi immerses himself in the sheer beauty of the place ESO Photo Ambassador Petr Horálek marvels at the Martian landscape of the desert Astronomer Yuri Beletsky has time to stand and stare Legendary rock star and astrophysicist Brian May came to visit this extraordinary place The observatories are honoured by visits from the local fauna as well A wild fox makes a tenuous living in the desert Vicuñas and guanacos, desert camelids, pass by the ESO observatories Desert donkeys are often to be found grazing by the roadside A tinamou bird explores the desert landscape Short-eared owls guard the night And shy viscachas look for food And finally the celestial visitors — comets... show off in a spectacular sky over ESO’s observatories and the desolate desert landscape Spectacular Comet McNaught in January 2007 brought breathtaking views Comet Lovejoy unexpectedly survived its close approach to the Sun And appeared as the Christmas comet over the Atacama Desert in 2011 The desolate beauty of the Atacama Desert will continue to enchant visitors Transcription by ESO; translation by —
