the Very Large Array is just that - extremely large array of radio telescopes linked together to search the universe for signals. Off Route 66 near Socorro NM these dishes form a majestic sight. the dishes move along tracks and can be moved closer together and futher apart as needed. There is a small museum/visitor's center to provide information about the astronomy observatory located here.
