Riding toward the observatory. Visitor center. Quite accurate. Some seven-year-old kid found this 1.500 pound meteorite near here in 1903. It made the rounds on exhibit and now rests here. Museum exhibits at the visitor center. I didn't take the full tour, but I did sit in on the presentation. Very interesting and it really puts things in perspective. Kind of humbling. Some will say it conflicts with about every religion on earth. They project some live telescope images of the sun during this presentation. Don't forget the sunscreen. If you take the long tour you go inside one of these. Since I didn't I got to check this one out on my own. Just ride up there and take a look. This is a visitor lobby and viewing area. The small tower next to the dome is a laser alignment tool for getting all the separate mirrors lined up. Explanation of some of the components. Looking back down the mountain to the visitor center.
