LST1 and Galaxy

23. November 2021

Enjoy the view of the famous telescope LST1 standing on Roque de Los Muchachos IAC observatory in La Palma. This telescope serves to observe the Cherenkov radiation – particles faster than light in the Earth’s atmosphere. In the photograph, we can see the 23m-diameter prototype telescope pointing directly to the Milky Way core, where the Sagittarius A black hole exists. It’s just a symbolic intention of the photographer because black holes produce gamma-rays.
