​Given ongoing developments related to the COVID-19 pandemic, ESOhas postponed the proposal submission deadline for Period 106 from 26 March to 23 April 12:00 CEST (8pm Australian Eastern Standard Time, 6pm Australian Western Standard Time).

Furthermore, to minimise the risk of infection the presence of staff has been significantly reduced at the La Silla Paranal Observatory over the past week leading to a number of restrictions to the ongoing science operation. As a consequence science operation will cease at all ESO observatory sites from 23 March 2020 until further notice.

Please go to the P106 Call for Proposals web page for more information on how to apply. More information can be found for Australian applicants on AAL’s Australian ESO Forum. Applicants who seek advice on proposal or observing strategies, optimal choice of instrument, etc. are invited to contact AAL’s ESO Program Manager, Stuart Ryder:
