A Very Large Array
This afternoon, similar to what I did last year, we went to visit the NRAO Very Large Array which is about an hour away from Socorro. Its the perfect 3 hour trip to do in the middle of the day between photographing the birds at Bosque.
I had a great time photographing the radio telescopes. We were also fortunate in that the telescopes were re-oriented to observe a different target while we were there so we were able to witness them moving up close.
If you are ever in the central New Mexico area, I definitely recommend checking out the VLA.
