The first astronomical observatory in Israel officially opened in October at Mitzpe Ramon, a little town approximately 100 miles south of Tel Aviv in the Negev Desert. The $1.5 million installation features a 40-inch reflecting telescope and its associated electronic equipment for advanced studies of the stars and galaxies and for research on quasars and X-ray sources.
