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.
