ATCA at night video (by Alex Cherney)
The screen shot above is from a time-lapse video made by Alex Cherney of the Australia Telescope Compact Array. The fuzzy blob in the sky just left of centre is the Large Magellanic Cloud, a neighbouring galaxy to our Milky Way -- and an object that has been studied in detail with the ATCA. At the left hand side of the image the ATCA Visitors Centre can be seen, with the lights from the Control Building also evident in the background. The ATCA antennas were in one of their most compact array configurations at the time the video was made.
