The Star-roof

The Star-roof, which weighs almost 30 tonnes, consists of glass panels set into a metal framework made of triangular sections — 262 of them, arranged to artistically represent some of the constellations of the southern sky. More information about the roof construction is available in this ESO Supernova announcement.
