Milestone-Proposal:First Radio Astronomical Observations Using VLBI, 1967
Milestone Buildings Exist Yes
Milestone Present Site Owner National Research Council Canada (NRC)
Milestone Site Access Details The site is accessible to the public seven The site is accessible to the public seven days a week from Easter to Thanksgiving and five days a week through the winter. When staff are not present, the DRAO site is secured by electronically operated access gates and a security system. Observatory scientists typically give tours to 1000 school students throughout the year. A professional guide typically gives weekend tours to 5000 visitors per year. Casual self-guided visitors to the site typically number 5000 each year. The Observatory holds an Open House every September that typically attracts over 1000 visitors each year. lly attracts over 1000 visitors each year.
Milestone Site Description The Dominion Radio Astrophysical Observato The Dominion Radio Astrophysical Observatory (DRAO) is a National Facility for astronomy operated by the National Research Council Canada. It is operated to support the research of the Canadian astronomy community, mostly consisting of researchers in universities. The plaque will be installed on the base of the DRAO 26-m radiotelescope that was used as the western site of the first successful VLBI radio astronomical observations in April 1967 observations. This location will be readily accessible to the several thousand members of the general public that visit the Observatory site each year.
