    The Zwicky Transient Facility sees “first light”: a new era in the study of the dynamic sky

    The Zwicky Transient Facility is now ready to start operations. A new robotic camera with the ability to capture hundreds of thousands of galaxies in a single shot has taken its first image of the sky. The recently installed camera is part of a new automated sky-survey project based at the Palomar Observatory in California and a revolutionising tool for the study of rapidly varying cosmic phenomena
