Research Observatories

The Astronomy Department is a major partner in the WIYN 3.5m and the SALT telescopes, which are our major science facilities. In addition, the department is running the WIYN 0.9m telescope on Kitt Peak and the Pine Bluff observatory. Beyond these ground-based efforts in the visible, the department is involved in keystone projects for the SKA precursors ASKAP and MEERKAT and the Arecibo radio telescope, and UV sounding rocket experiments.
