There Is A Unique Man-Made Wonder Hiding In This Small Town In New Mexico

I'm an east coast girl living in a west coast world. I grew up in New England before moving to SoCal for several years. I then lived in NYC or a year before moving to AZ in 2009. I worked in the entertainment industry for many years of my adult life and have a deep love for photography, writing, and traveling around the U.S. as well as to far-flung locations around the world. Travel is my life and writing about it is a dream!
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.
