This time-lapse shows off CSIRO's new telescope, the Australian SKA Pathfinder (ASKAP), standing tall in Western Australia. ASKAP has been designed to be able to survey the whole sky extremely quickly. This in turn will make possible astronomy projects that could never have been done before.

ASKAP has 36 antennas that work together as one. They are quite spread out, so here only a few are visible together in one frame.
