The 6.5-m Magellan telescope (Baade) observing the starry sky. Milky Way is rising on the left side, while the Large Magellanic Cloud is visible on the right. At the moment of the exposure the lamp was switched on inside the dome, which produce such unusual view. The color of the night sky is never black indeed, and it does have a greenish color due to atmospheric emissions.
