    When I was a kid (say from 11 to 16) I was space mad - I built and launched rockets***, I pestered NASA and they would send me stuff at no cost to me - once they sent me a maintenance manual (a giant thick hugely technical real manual) for the Saturn V rocket. I also received autographed mission photos for several Apollo missons. I built a huge Saturn V rocket model that was taller than me at the time, along with models of Gemini and ...

At that point in the day, the sun is so high and the light so strong, that it can be hard to even see the poles, but as dusk set in the clouds also began to roll in. At first, the storms we could see were way out on the horizon and we watched lightning strike distant fields and mountains. Right around sunset, we went out into the field to explore.

    ... on the valley below us, was the Very Large Array.

    You know the Very Large Array—you've seen the pictures and movies where those huge satellite dishes are all lined up, 20 miles or so long on the desert, pointing to the sky, listening and looking for things like big radio astronomy telescopes do. Well, we found them. And while we had limited time, we paid them a visit.
