The VLT Survey Telescope (VST) at ESO's Paranal Observatory in Chile has captured this richly detailed new image of the Lagoon Nebula.
My name is Herman, and I’m a patroller on the Norwegian Wikipedia, and sysop on the Norwegian Wikibooks. If you have questions, or want to contact me, please don't hestitate to contact me either on my Commons user talk, or at my English user talk (IW).
Here on Commons I’ve become more and more active, because I really like the idea of a huge database in which there are freely licensed images and other media files, combined with the MediaWiki software, with which you can contribute to the database yourself. I often take a look at the recent uploads and changes to look for copyvio, that of course is to be deleted. I’m active on the Featured picture candidates page, to which I have nominated some images (I think there were two). None of them have been successful (maybe because I took the photos myself? ), but my most recent nomination succeeded. This is my second edit of the picture, which became featured, see [[|its entry]]. I found the image whilst I was checking the recent uploads. There sure are some good photographers out there. You can find the picture right under the babel box on this page.
