Kitt Peak

We went with Grandma and Grandpa to Kitt Peak today. It was really windy and cold, but it was so much fun. The telescopes are huge! It was neat to see the giant telescopes up close. Below is the bottom half of the 2.1 Meter telescope.
Behind us is the telescope they use to watch the sun. When we went inside, you could see the telescope on a track that went up and down depending on the position of the sun. Most of the telescope is underground.
