Heading to the VLA
The VLA from a distance
Looking like giant mushrooms.
The entrance to the VLA
The visitor's center
Hurry up, it's cold and windy out here.
Taking the self-guided tour
At the base of one of the dishes.
Sheri's turn to pose
Hip hip array!
Showing the railroad track used to move the antenna.
The control building in the distance
Pointing up one minute...
Pointing elsewhere the next moment.
Whimsical tiles in the bathroom
In the movie, Contact, they made it look like there were nearly 131 of these dishes...
In reality, there are 31 dishes in the array.
