Apache Point Observatory, Sacramento Mountains, New Mexico


Apache Point Observatory, Sacramento Mountains, New Mexico


I got the idea from the NSO tour guide that the astronomists at nearby Apache Point Observatory, also on Sacramento Peak, have a rather good sense of humor. Alas, Apache Point Observatory only offers two public tours per year, and I've missed both opportunities.

But I walked around the grounds.

Not only do the astronomers have a good view, presumably, of the skies, they've got a kick-ass view of the mountainside and the Tularosa Basin off into the distance.
