Sun-Powered: Cerro Armazones, in Chile, to be site of the ELT.
The Cerro Armazones mountain in the Chilean desert, near ESO's Paranal Observatory, will be the site for the European Extremely Large Telescope (ELT), which, with its 39-metre diameter mirror, will be the world’s biggest eye on the sky. Here, an artist's rendering shows how the telescope will look on the mountain when it is complete. Credit: ESO/L. Calçada
