As the night proceeds, the starry sky displays its beauties, including the outstanding shape of the Milky Way; just below the horizon, headlights of cars pass by, as astronomers and engineers on the site are busy working and driving from one facility to the other and further down, to the ALMA Operations Support Facility (OSF), the base camp for the everyday, routine operation of the observatory, located at an altitude of 2900 meters.
