Kitt Peak at night


About this image

Kitt Peak mountain top looking north-east. Small star trails are visible. This older view shows the first University of Arizona SpaceWatch telescope and the Steward Observatory's 90-inch telescope, the Mayall 4-meter, an older version of the MIT all-sky monitor, and the Burrell Schmidt (from left to right). Compare this with a more recent picture.
