National Astronomical Observatory of Chile Album

On Sunday, October 26, we visited the National Observatory in Santiago, a part of the Univeristy of Chile. It is located on a hill overlooking the capital city, Santiago.

It has several telescopes, but is not too active with research. It does some education and public outreach.
