In mid-August 2010 ESO Photo Ambassador Yuri Beletsky snapped this amazing photo at ESO’s Paranal Observatory. A group of astronomers were observing the centre of the Milky Way using the laser guide star facility at Yepun, one of the four Unit Telescopes of the Very Large Telescope (VLT). (POTD)
Tabletop photography by "Studiocommunity e.V." (incorporated association). No photomontage was used. All objects were fastened on the board, which was pushed from the side, whereby the wine spilled out of the glass. The carafe is filled with wine coloured gelatine. (POTD)
