A stellar adventure

Last week I was privileged to visit the historic 60-inch telescope at Southern California’s Mt. Wilson Observatory. At its installation on December 8, 1908, it was the largest operational telescope in the world. Today, the telescope has taken on a new role as the largest telescope in the world made exclusively available for public viewing. Here’s a video I made about it! NOTE: Although I did see Saturn, a globular cluster, and the Ring Nebula that night (among other celestial objects), the photos in the video were culled from the webosphere. The real thing was even more amazing!
