4200 ft. above the hills of Silicon Valley is the Lick Observatory owned and operated by the University of California. It is about 20 miles from the city of San Jose at the bottom, but it takes about 1 hour to get to the top from traversing the dangerous windy roads.
4200 ft is very high. The building is so beautiful. :)
interestingly located up there. I wonder what else can one observe from here. More pics?
A great place to visit for sure.
Wow looks so familiar, never have been up close like that though thanks for sharing very very cool!
Love the inside of the building...
The building both outside and inside. And the view is beautiful. Wonderful photos!
Wow, this thing looks huge! You should visit it also during the night.
Out of this world!
Love the curve and the royal blue sky. Mine is in blue today too.
Looks like a beautiful place to visit. We have a large telescope near us (associated with museum of natural science) & we enjoy looking through the big telescope (when the clouds stay out of the way)
What dream to spend a long, long time inside. Thank you for this journey.daily athens photo
Thank you everyone for visiting and commenting. It is a fun place to visit and this was only my 2nd trip up there in decades. Unfortunately, they do not allow visitors up there at night except for the occasional special event. The road is already too dangerous during the day and I don't think I can stomach driving up there at night. If you monitor the webcams regularly, you can see some spectacular sunrises and sunsets. http://mthamilton.ucolick.org/hamcam/
It's such an interesting architectural piece, even before one considers the cosmic visuals it gives us :)
It surely looks very beautiful. The road also looks amazing with the twists and turns. Thanks for sharing, have a lovely day :)
Terrific shots as always! Thanks for joining us at Wordless Wednesday Bloggers! www.wordlesswednesdaybloggers.blogspot.com. Looking forward to seeing what you post next week.
Would love to visit! Even with an unnerving and lengthy trek, it looks like it would be worth it :)
love the constrast between the sky and the white roof in the third picture! happy weekend from white lowlands:-)
