Palomar Observatory on TV this week

Look for Caltech's Mike Brown and Palomar Observatory to be featured in this Thursday's episode of Known Universe on the National Geographic Channel. Check your local listings.

Check out the preview embedded below (and please accept our apologies for the commercial that runs first).

Filming at the Hale Telescope was done last summer. In the episode Mike Brown talks about dwarf planet Eris, a member of Kuiper Belt, discovered by him with images taken with Palomar's 48-inch Samuel Oschin Telescope.
