Mojo said...

My first thought was that it looked like something out of a sci-fi movie. I was waiting for the metallic voice saying "People of Earth, attention. We come in peace."

(Lying beggars! They never came in peace!)

Maddy said...

It's the scale that's the killer.

Wow. That's an incredible thingy doodle. Probably gets all the channels plus a few aliens.

ZJ said...

That's a massive, massive dish! I wonder how many thousands of pounds is spent to maintain this facility every year?

rmgales said...

Wow, that is huge! Nice shot.

Lori said...

It reminds me of that movie with Jodie Foster when she was trying to contact the aliens. I believe it was actually called CONTACT. Great shot...Happy WW.

Randall said...

Great shot. I love the film "The Dish". You must see it if you haven't yet. I also love Wallace and Gromit, so thanks for the heads up on the new film. I suppose it'll take us longer to get it over here in the U.S. But I'm looking forward to it.

Heart of Rachel said...

That's a humongous dish. That's a great angle.

Mar said...

I'd love to have one of those...
Happy WW!

WOW. That thing is HUGE! and this is such a great shot - the sepia. I must start playing around with my camera and trying out stuff like this.

And you know I love Science. thanks for sharing!

The website of JB says 2009 is the Internat'l yr of Astronomy. I just got a notice from my society that is the Year of Science. All science, all year!

Happy WW

It looked pretty big until I saw the people. That thing is monstrous! Great selection.

lisaschaos said...

Thanks everyone. Jodrell Bank is I think the 3rd largest radio telescope in the world. It is a national icon

Toia said...

Napaboaniya said...

Any TV addict will love to have this in their backyard :P

Thanks for the well wishes for my daughter, she has been discharged and is currently under home observation.

Jim said...

Hi Jams, that is a nice picture. I have always wanted to tour a radio telescope facility but never made it. I did work at an Air Force Satellite Tracking station way back when that had a 60 foot dish. It was never configured to be a telescope antenna but we did put it on the ham bands occasionally.
Happy WW! I am very late today.
