10/10/16, Monday: Very Large Array, NM to Capitan, NM

On the way to our next camping spot (Capitan), we stopped at the Visitor Center of the Very Large Array ("one of the world's premier astronomical radio observatories"). We watched a great film narrated by Jodie Foster (because the film 'Contact' was filmed there at the VLA), and then walked a self-guided tour of the grounds and got up-close-and-personal with the nearest dish.
