o Photograph from Mt. Wilson Observatory A BIRD'S-EYE VIEW OF A LUNAR LANDSCAPE THROUGH THE IOO-INCH TELESCOPE The mountain at the right, near the large poollike crater, is the same height as Mt. Wilson. The small white splotches atthe bottom ofthe picture are the summits of lunar peaks bathed in the glory of the setting sun. Standing on Mt. Wilson andwatching the shadows fall on the slopes of San Jacinto, while its summit still towers into the sunlight, and then, at night, looking through the telescope and seeing the summits oflunar peaks aglow in the same way, is a thrilling experience.
