WorldCat, our new
Library Display George Ellery Hale was a pioneer in the development of early 20th century telescopes.
He developed the telescopes at California’s Mt. Wilson and Palomar
Mountain Observatories and the
discoveries made there have greatly influenced the science of astronomy as we know it today.
Our current display traces the history and the future of the telescope and especially Hale’s
contributions to the world famous Palomar Observatory. For those interested in exploring our
universe further, Palomar College offers several CSU;UC transferable astronomy classes in
which students can learn about the physical nature of light and the optical principles of a telescope.
The campus also boasts a new 138 seat planetarium with shows open to the public.
The display was created by Mary Kira.
