More on the VLA

The Very Large Array (VLA) was dedicated in 1980.  Astronomers from around the world use it to study objects from our Solar system to the edges of the known Universe, billions of light-years from the earth.  The telescope array consists of 27
230 ton dish antennas that together comprise a single radio telescope system.

A Very Large Array

The Very Large Array is an astronomical observatory.  This picture is from the road because I could only take photos with our camera while actually at the sight  because cell phones disrupt the signals on the radio waves.  This one is from the cell phone.  I am learning how to do this, maybe I'll be able to get the really good pictures from the camera soon!  This sight is about 40 miles from our home. 

Be sure to Google VLA and you will be able to learn all about it!
