Found on Flickr: a cool picture of a giant laser beaming out of the MMT Telescope
, on top of Mt. Hopkins in Arizona. The guy who took it, Filip Pizlo
, says it's not photoshopped, and I'm willing to believe him, if only because when I was a grad student at UC San Diego there was a green laser beam similar to this visible in the sky over La Jolla almost every night. I never figured out where it was coming from or what the purpose of it was. It couldn't have been coming from the MMT Telescope in Arizona because that would have been too far away.
