This is a classical site from a different dimention!! it seems that most inhabitant from Quito don´t even know this building exists, nor do they know it was recently re-opened to the public after a serious restauration process. This Building (looks like a mad scientist castle from a theme park) constructed in 1873, is a replica of the Observatory in Bonn. It has the most amazing instruments for metereology, seismography, geophysics and astronomy. All these old german gadgets- museum artifacts- work as they did on day one!! amazing is the big Merz Telescope, ensambled in Munich in 1875!!! crisp clear images, the Quito Astronomical Observatory kindly shares with everyone in the web!
