As 2013 is ending ESO has already prepared the ESO 2014 calendar and has, as always, breathtaking pictures of stars, sky, galaxies, and of the observatories that it manages.
14 pages of awesomeness await you in this PDF here. Print it, copy it, share it, love it.
On the cover image you can see the spectacular star-forming Carina Nebula has been captured in great detail by the VLT Survey Telescope at ESO’s Paranal Observatory. This picture was taken with the help of Sebastián Piñera, President of Chile, during his visit to the observatory on 5 June 2012 and released on the occasion of the new telescope’s inauguration in Naples on 6 December 2012.
The individual images of the ESO 2014 calendar can be seen at this link.
Way to go ESO.
