The installed astronomical infrastructure in Northern Chile accounts for 50% of the world's light collection capacity.

The observatories planned for coming years will bring that total to 70%, making Chile a uniquely attractive destination for the world's astronomers.

The inherent features of Northern Chile, from the bone-dry desert, to the altitude, and the absence of rain and clouds, make the region the perfect platform for gazing at our universe --and beyond.
