Seventy Years Ago Today

Seventy years ago this month the first parts of the 200-inch telescope began arriving on Palomar Mountain. Here are shots from October 28, 1938 as the horseshoe and other parts made their way up that mountain and were lifted onto the observing floor.

You can see more of this in The Journey to Palomar. We still have some seats left for our screening in the dome on Sunday, November 2nd.
