Kitt Peak National Observatory


About this image

KPNO aerial view, 1993. This 1993 aerial photograph of the Kitt Peak mountain, some 50 miles WSW of Tucson, Arizona, shows the then current state of the large collection of telescopes maintained and operated by the National Optical Astronomy Observatory, along with some `client' telescopes owned by other groups and supported to various extents by NOAO. A variety of aerial views can be found under the facilities category, including another one taken by the same Phoenix company on the same rather dreary, overcast day.
