An observatory is a location used for observing terrestrial or celestial events. Astronomy, climatology / meteorology, geology, oceanography and volcanology are examples of disciplines for which observatories have been constructed. (wikipedia)
- Wikipedia: An observatory is a location used for observing terrestrial or celestial events. Astronomy, climatology/meteorology, geophysical, oceanography and volcanology are examples of disciplines for which observatories have been constructed. Historically, observatories were as simple as containing an astronomical sextant or Stonehenge.
- Equatorial room - An equatorial room, in astronomical observatories, is the room which contains an equatorial mounted telescope.
- Fundamental station - A fundamental point is the geometric origin of a geodetic network and defines the geodetic datum of a national survey.
- Ground station - A ground station, earth station, or earth terminal is a terrestrial radio station designed for extraplanetary telecommunication with spacecraft, or reception of radio waves from astronomical radio sources. Ground stations may be located either on the surface of the Earth, or in its atmosphere.
- Observatory Street , Oxford, England.
- Space observatory - A space telescope or space observatory is an instrument located in outer space to observe distant planets, galaxies and other astronomical objects. Space telescopes avoid many of the problems of ground-based observatories, such as light pollution and distortion of electromagnetic radiation.
- Telescope - A telescope is an optical instrument that aids in the observation of remote objects by collecting electromagnetic radiation. The first known practical telescopes were invented in the Netherlands at the beginning of the 17th century, by using glass lenses.
