Astronomical observatory; The Galaxy Whirlpool Jun 20, 2014
The astronomical observatory located at the top of Mount Lemmon is also known as the infrared observatory. While spending a day up the mountain, we decided to go tour the observatory. We were advised that the best time to see the sky is in the night. Night sky observing tickets are available.

The observatory is managed by the University of Arizona. Each night the galaxy whirlpool is shown by the Shulman telescope as part of the Skynight experience.
