Big Bear Solar Observatory
Starting the second week of the astronomy workshop, we were able to tour the Big Bear Solar Observatory. The New Solar Telescope at BBSO has a 1.6M primary mirror, and saw first light in 2009. Outfitted with cutting-edge technology, the NST provides some of the highest resolution images of our sun currently available.
