This unusual image was taken at dusk from Coral Towers Observatory using a modified Canon 5D Mk II and 600 mm lens plus extenders. It shows Jupiter rising through a thick bank of clouds on the eastern horizon. The star-like object immediately below Jupiter is probably the combined light from Io and Europa.

2019 Total Solar Eclipse Event at ESO’s La Silla Observatory in Chile

On 2 July 2019 one of nature’s most impressive phenomena will be visible from ESO’s La Silla Observatory in Chile — a total solar eclipse. As these are very rare — the next one visible from La Silla will occur in 212 years — ESO is organising a campaign of observing and outreach activities on site, allowing the general public to experience this spectacular event. Tickets to participate will be available from 13:00 CEST/07:00 CLT on Friday 13 July 2018.
