Southwestern telescopes

Astrophotographer Jeff Dai sent in a photo of the night sky over southwestern China. He writes: "The arc of winter Milky Way is photographed in this panoramic photo from Yunnan Astronomical Observatory in southwestern China. The dome, housing a 2.4 meter diameter telescope, is [illuminated] by the moonrise alpenglow."

Big Bear Solar Observatory (BBSO) recorded an interesting image of the Sun on January 12, 2013 at 07:57 UTC. Using Kanzelhoehe H-alpa filters to spot the active regions of the Sun, BBSO telescope captured a plain and contrail flying afront of the Sun as seen from the Earth. The Big Bear Solar Observatory is a solar observatory located on the north side of Big Bear Lake in the San Bernardino Mountains of southwestern San Bernardino County, California (USA), approximately 120 kilometers…
