Jodrell Bank Telescopes

Jodrell Bank Observatory is home to a small handful of telescopes, but the two most iconic are pictured above. On the right is the main Lovell Telescope, measuring just over 76 metres in diameter and completed in 1957. On the left is the smaller, more modem Mark II radio telescope. The low autumn sunlight of early evening really helps show off the shape and structure of these two giants of science.
