Paul Wild Observatory


Paul Wild Observatory

A number of major astronomical facilities are located at the Paul Wild Observatory near Narrabri, Australia, including:

* The Australia Telescope Compact Array radio telescope
* The Sydney University Stellar Interferometer (see http://www.physics.usyd.edu.au/astron/susi/ )
* A node of the Birmingham Solar Oscillations Network
* The Ionospheric Prediction Service (see http://www.ips.gov.au/ ).

The observatory is named in honor of Australian radio astronomer Paul Wild.

Two other astronomical facilities are located nearby (although not on the same site). They are the Narrabri Stellar Intensity Interferometer (now decommissioned) and the Bohema Creek Cosmic Ray Observatory.
