I found this video last evening at APOD (Astronomy Picture of the Day) and it led to the original video at youtube, which is going 'viral' around the planet... last evening (September 2011) it had 473,000 views, this morning it has 505,000 views... (December 2015: 2 million+ :-)

You Must View at "Full Screen" on the largest screen possible, and Crank Up the Music...

Please wear headphones if you are viewing this in your classroom!

Note: Chile is in the Southern Hemisphere, so the sky this VLT views is different than our Northern Hemisphere view,

with some different constellations, etc. See: Why are the constellations different in the Southern Hemisphere?
