A Close Look at the Logistics of Terrestrial and Celestial Observation
We arrived to the observatory and the first thing I saw was the astronomer’s monument in the middle of the yard in front of the building. The newly restored concrete sculpture commemorates six successful astronomers, Hipparchus, Nicholas Copernicus, Galileo Galilei, Johannes Kepler, Isaac Newton, and William Herschel. It’s important to remember those who established the foundations of Astronomy. The statue is a nice introduction to the observatory since it reminds the viewers of people who utilized observatories to change the history of science.
