Kitt Peak National Observatory

 The Kitt Peak National Observatory in Arizona (about 40 miles west of Tucson) was a really interesting place to visit.  This observatory has many buildings and telescopes in various sizes.  A few of them allow visitors.  We drove up to the top of the mountain on a good paved road.

 We were able to view the sun through this telescope.  We happened to visit during a time when sun spots were visible.
