Anglo-Australian Telescope

Australia is a world leader in astronomy. This is the dome of the Anglo-Australian Telescope (AAT) at the Australian Astronomical Observatory (AAO), Siding Springs, near Coonabaraban, NSW, Australia. The telescope survived a horrendous bushfire in January 2013. Located in the Warrumbungles National Park, the optical telescope was the third largest telescope in the world when built in 1974, with an aperture of 3.9 metres (153").
