Just Hop on the Bus, Gus

Autoblog Green is reporting that the first natural gas hybrid bus is now running in San Diego. This may be of interest to fans of Palomar Observatory, not just because the bus is green, but because the side of the bus features a mural of 50 attractions in San Diego County. Included in the list is, you guessed it, Palomar Observatory.

An interactive version of the mural is available on line. Be sure to check it out and pass your mouse over Palomar Mountain to see a large view of the dome, complete with spiral galaxy in the sky.

Special thanks go out to Francis French of the San Diego Air & Space Museum to giving me the news.
