A visit to the beautiful Observatorio de Yebes (Spain)

Submitter: Roy van der Werp
Description: At the beginning of September, the head of the ASTRON lab Gert Kruithof visited the Observatorio de Yebes (IGN) in Spain. IGN is a very interesting institute with beautiful surroundings. Our old friend Paco Colomer (top right) and José Antonio Lopez were the hosts and they showed Gert around during his two-day visit to Yebes.

The activities of Observatorio de Yebes are complementary in many ways to those of ASTRON and JIVE. We had the opportunity to take a look at their facilities, the fast moving dish with the many receivers and large mirrors; very impressive.
