Here’s yet another gem from photographer Knate Myers. This was shot at the Very Large Array (VLA) in New Mexico which is still on my bucket (aka things I will likely never get do) list, but it’s there none the less. If you remember, the VLA is where a large portion of the 1997 Carl Sagan film “Contact” was filmed. I really hope you guys enjoy this photo and go check out his work to include his timelapse work because it’s amazing.

The following is an excerpt from the NRAO & VLA website in regards to the VLA:
The Very Large Array, one of the world’s premier astronomical radio observatories, consists of 27 radio antennas in a Y-shaped configuration on the Plains of San Agustin fifty miles west of Socorro, New Mexico. Each antenna is 25 meters (82 feet) in diameter. The data from the antennas is combined electronically to give the resolution of an antenna 36km (22 miles) across, with the sensitivity of a dish 130 meters (422 feet) in diameter.

    Hi Knate,
    could we use this amazing image for a document we produce highlighting the research we do? My name is Pete Wheeler, I work for something called the International centre for Radio Astronomy Research in Perth, Western Australia, and we use data from the VLA in some of the work we do. My email address is pete.wheeler@icrar.orhg.
