Window to the Universe - McDonald Observatory (Texas Parks & Wildlife Official)

The stars at night really are big and bright, deep in the heart of Texas. The University of Texas McDonald observatory is ranked among the top ten observatories in the world. Because of its location in the heart of the Davis Mountains, astronomers have some of the darkest and clearest night skies available in the United States. We take a look at the observatory, and what is done there for science and for the public.
