Artist's Description

Taken near Parkes NSW

The dish is continually on the move as it scans the sky.
247 second exposure shows that movement.

Canon 5D 24-105mm Lens

Astronomers use the Parkes CSIRO Radio telescope to measure the radio energy produced naturally by objects in the universe such as stars, galaxies and clouds of dust and gas. Occasionally the Parkes telescope will assist space exploration missions by acting as a receiving station to receive radio transmissions from space craft but our main job remains astronomy.
