Sunday's Column - Astronomy

I'm glad to see that The Sun has finally got the column for last week and this one too up on the site - not sure what the problem is but it's been rectified.  This week we look over our heads to the skies.  We have a fine small observatory located just outside Sky Forest on the Rim of the World Highway.  It has lectures regularly and for those with an interest in the world beyond us it's an ideal place to visit.
The center of the observatory is a 16” Schmidt-Cassegram telescope that has a “go-to” system with access to over 200 million images, which seems a lot to me.  If you'd like to read more please go to
