Aerial view of Cerro Pachón and the Vera C. Rubin Observatory.

This video footage is taken by a drone flying over Cerro Pachón where the Vera C. Rubin Observatory, a Program of NSF's NOIRLab in Chile, is under construction. Once complete, the Rubin Observatory will conduct an unprecedented, decade-long survey of the optical sky called the Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST) which will revolutionize the field of astronomy and what we know about the Universe.
