The highest point in the Pacific Basin, and the highest island-mountain in the world, Mauna Kea rises 9,750 meters (32,000 ft) from the ocean floor to an altitude of 4,205 meters (13,796 ft) above sea level, which places its summit above 40 percent of the Earth's atmosphere.

McDonald Observatory - http://www.as.utexas.edu/mcdonald/mcdonald.html
McDonald Observatory, a research unit of The University of Texas at Austin, is one of the world's leading centers for astronomical research, teaching, and public education and outreach. Observatory facilities are located atop Mount Locke and Mount Fowlkes in the Davis Mountains of West Texas, which offer some of the darkest night skies in the continental United States. The Observatory's administrative offices are on the UT-Austin campus. The Observatory works with the University's Department of Astronomy on both research and teaching.
The U.S. Naval Observatory is one of the oldest scientific agencies in the country. Established in 1830 as the Depot of Charts and Instruments, its primary mission was to care for the U.S. Navy's chronometers, charts and other navigational equipment. Today, USNO is the preeminent authority in the areas of Precise Time and Astrometry, and distributes Earth Orientation parameters and other Astronomical Data required for accurate navigation and fundamental astronomy. USNO headquarters in Washington, DC is the administrative and scientific hub of Observatory operations and is home to the James Melville Gilliss Library, one of the most complete collections of astronomical literature in the world. USNO operates a remote observing station at Flagstaff, AZ and an Alternate Master Clock Facility at Colorado Springs, CO.

We specialize in CCD imaging, especially photometry of variable stars, working in conjunction with Jeff Robertson at Arkansas
Tech University to provide data on cataclysmic variable stars for Indiana University, and the CBA (Center for Backyard Astrophysics). Our work has been published in astronomical journals. But, true to our heart as amateur astronomers, my wife and I especially enjoy showing guests the marvelous wonders of the night sk

Griffith Observatory is celebrating the International Year of Astronomy (IYA), the 400th anniversary of Galileo's pioneering telescope observations. To mark this important milestone in human history, we will hold special public events throughout 2009, including the debut of an exciting new show in the Samuel Oschin Planetarium.
The Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks has owned and operated Griffith Observatory since 1935. It is also responsible for Griffith Park and for parks, recreation centers, and programs throughout the City of Los Angeles.
