At Kit Peak the National Observatory

Kit Peak National Observatory. The large concrete doughnut is a concrete replica
of one of the telescope mirrors. While they are building the telescope house they
put in a concrete replica – can’t chip a block of concrete by dropping a hammer.

The solar observatory with the rising moon just over it. We spent the evening
at the observatory using one of the telescopes there. It was fantastic!
