Searching the Heavens
     
  Location: Very Large Array radio telescope, West of Socorro, NM
Date Taken: November 30, 2003
Comments: This is one of three legs of a huge array of radio telescope dishes on the Plains of San Agustin, remote from most sources of electrical interference. The setting sun presents a surreal image as it lights the dish antennas receding into the distance. The movie Contact, starring Jodie Foster, was shot here.
