Located near the small city of Socorro is a unique man-made wonder in New Mexico. The Very Large Array Radio Telescope facility is like something out of sci-fi. When I first saw it in person, I couldn’t believe what I was looking at. This collection of radio telescopes looks as otherworldly in person as it does in pictures. But if you’re in New Mexico, I urge you to visit this extraordinary man-made wonder.
