Web Eye on the Big Eye

You never know what you might see on the Hale Telescope's Web Cam. Yesterday offered up this impressive shot of the Big Eye.

The good folks over at HPWREN archive images and even make movie clips from them. Here's a link to the animation from the work taking place yesterday.

The view of from the web cam isn't too impressive at night, but it can be pretty magical right at the dome opens in the evening and closes in the morning. I'll share some good shots from those another time.

What a great view! It is rare for the public to be able to see range of motion of the Hale.

Thanks for sharing!
