2011 - An introduction to the Kitt Peak National Optical Astronomy Observatory. Information about the science center and the telescopes as well as the Steward Mirror Lab. If you have not seen the tour of the Mirror Lab, it is worth the trip. The lenses that were made for Chile took over 2 years to perfect. Kitt Peak is open during the day for the solar observatory and at night for star viewing. Reservations are required for nighttime viewing. Learn more about Kitt Peak visitor opportunities here.
