The sun is rising, and people are starting to go down, but LCO doesn’t stop working. If you look in front of you, you can see where the Giant Magellan Telescope or GMT is being built. It is a project associated with LCO, like the solar telescope you can find to your right. Chilean skies are a unique natural heritage, and today are in danger due to increasing light pollution, which is a real threat to the continuity of large astronomical projects. If you want to learn how to fight light pollution, go to www.cieloschile.cl. Well. I have to go; goodbye. It was a pleasure to show you LCO today. Please, come back any time you want. See you around!
