Jodrell Bank

The Lovell Telescope at Jodrell Bank entertained us by turning round and tipping during our visit.  It was a spectacular sight against an almost clear blue sky until just before we left to go home when the clouds rolled in.

There is a shot of the whole telescope in Extra photos.  The entire structure rotates on a circular track.  At one point the dish was horizonal pointing straight upwards into space where it searches for signs of life in other galaxies.
