  Observatory: Astronomy: Observatory - WHERE IN THE WORLD
Posted on Saturday, December 04 @ 16:50:00 CST by astronomy


You may never travel in a spacecraft, but you can visit one of the many professional observatories and space centers on Earth.

Many of the world's largest observatories and space centers provide tours, brochures, and programs for the public. Space centers tend to be located in major cities, but functioning optical and radio observatories will be found in more remote regions, well away from city light pollution and radio noise. Old observatories in urban areas, such as the Royal Greenwich Observatory in London, are often kept as museums and are well worth a visit.
