I just LOVE space and astronomy images, especially ones like this.
This long exposure photograph, courtesy of the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan, shows one of the 66 antennas that form the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array. Above the antennas, stars appear to rain down on the site.
This photographic technique was specifically used to show their trail across the sky as the Earth rotates.
The exceptionally arid climate of the Chajnantor Plateau in the Chilean Andes is inhospitable to humans, but creates an excellent location for submillimeter astronomy.
