Hat Creek Radio Observatory

If you're a satellite buff, I've got some frontal shots of these dishes too. Yeah, they do actually seek extraterrestrial life on some days. SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) is working on 350 of these and some never-before-seen technology that will allow all dishes to both seek the stars for other life and give us images of non-living matter (their primary duty atm) simultaneously. Featured in these articles: HMNS BEYONDbones, Softpedia, Wired Science, "Building a Better Alien-Calling Code", and The Viewspaper
