The Very Large Array on the San Agustin plains, 50 miles west of Socorro, New Mexico. These 27 radio antennas are constructed into a "Y" shape and are considered the world premier astronomical radio observatory. Each antenna is 82 feet in diameter. The area is open to visitors and they allow you to walk right out under the structures. This image was taken in September 2010. The 1997 movie "Contact" with Jodie Foster, Matthew McConaughey & Tom Skerritt was filmed here.
