Mt. Wilson Observatory

I haven’t been here yet, but I really wanna go.

Albert Einstein and astronomers at the Mount Wilson Observatory

“Built in 1904, the Mount Wilson Observatory is an astronomical observatory located in the San Gabriel Mountains near Pasadena, California. The observatory contains two historically important telescopes: the Hooker telescope, which was the largest telescope in the world from its completion in 1917 to 1949, and the 60-inch telescope which was the largest operational telescope in the world when it was completed in 1908.”

Free of charge, you can view the historic Hooker 100-inch telescope from the Visitors’ Gallery inside the dome. The hours are from 10AM to 4PM every day. (Check though if they’re back from Covid.)

Also I know what it’s like to feel unappreciated as an artist, so I thought it’d be cool to include other people I like in these emails. Check out @donnie_odonnell on Instagram.
