This incredible image comes from Knate Myers and it’s actually part of his beautiful timelapse “SKYLIGHTS” which I recommend you check out because the images, video and music are literally perfect together. This was shot at the Very Large Array (VLA) in New Mexico which is still on my bucket (aka things I will likely never get do) list, but it’s there none the less. If you remember, the VLA is where a large portion of the 1997 Carl Sagan film “Contact” was filmed. I really hope you guys enjoy this photo and go check out his work because it’s amazing.

The following is an excerpt from the NRAO & VLA website in regards to the VLA:
The Very Large Array, one of the world’s premier astronomical radio observatories, consists of 27 radio antennas in a Y-shaped configuration on the Plains of San Agustin fifty miles west of Socorro, New Mexico. Each antenna is 25 meters (82 feet) in diameter. The data from the antennas is combined electronically to give the resolution of an antenna 36km (22 miles) across, with the sensitivity of a dish 130 meters (422 feet) in diameter.
