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