Milky Way Over ALMA
In its high-elevation site, where the atmospheric pressure is half what it is at sea level, ALMA’s views of the sky are second to none. Here, the band of stars known as the Milky Way arcs over the antennas. This band is our embedded view through the disk of our spiral-shaped Milky Way Galaxy.
