Sunset from Table Mountain

This Sunset picture from Table Mountain was taken on January 23, 1963

This photograph was taken with Kodak Kodachrome 35mm film at 64 ASA with a Zeiss-Ikon 35mm
camera with a 50mm lens at f/4 for a 1/15 second exposure, and processed by Eastman Kodak.

This picture was taken only a few months after I came to the observatory. I soon found out that looking
at the skies at night was not the only thing of great beauty one could see.

Table Mountain Observatory, operated by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), is located just west of the
town of Wrightwood, California at an elevation of 7500 feet.
