Sunset to Moonrise at Paranal, Chile.

Just a fun little one minute video of a night at the ESO observatory in Chile. I first thought it was the sun coming up, but then the stars were still out. It was just light from the moonrise.
Skies once were like this just a few short years ago. Ok, more than just a few years, but maybe 30 years? I used to sleep on the backyard lawn in the summers and - faintly - still see the Milky Way in the sky. That is all gone now....and so is the slug that I found on my pillow next to my left ear when I woke up in the morning.
