Reaching for the Heavens: Vatican Observatory - George V. Coyne, S.J. Presented at the Adler Planetarium on November 16th, 2011
The University of Arizona is home to one of the world's largest telescopes and astronomers work very closely with the Vatican.
High above the Southern Arizona desert two white domes peek out of Pinaleno Mountains near Safford. The two domes are observatories, one is run by the Vatican, and the University of Arizona operates the larger telescope.
