Paul Wild Observatory, NSW
The arch of the Milky Way captured above CSIRO’s Australia Telescope Compact Array in Narrabri, NSW. There are six dishes like the ones pictured here, that combine to form a "virtual" dish with a diameter of up to 6km, helping to produce images of distant galaxies.
A recent upgrade, announced this month, doubled their sensitivity, meaning better and more detailed images should follow over the next few years.
