Palomar History Photo of the Week - August 23, 2010

Palomar Observatory is located not in, but right next to the Cleveland National Forest. Ocer the years there has been a long standing relationship between the two organizations.

This week's history photo of the week highlights that relationship with a vintage (likely from the 1940s) photograph of an unknown forest ranger with his vehicle parked in front of the dome of the 200-inch telescope.

If anyone can identify the ranger or knows anything even about his vehicle please leave a comment or send an email.
