The Meridian Laser

the Meridian Laser over London Skyline

The Meridian Laser is a line beamed into the night sky from the Royal Observatory at Greenwich. The line sits on the Prime Meridian and is visible up to 60 miles away. The picture below also shows Jupiter just above the observatory roof. :-)

That's very interesting. I didn't know anybody did anything like that laser. I'd love to be in the place you were to get that picture so I could see that laser in person.

I remember the first time we saw that laser. We had no idea what it was!! I'd love to visit there one night.
