Description: The Big Bear Solar Observatory is located on a spit of land in the middle of Big Bear Lake, California, to exploits the excellent climatic conditions of Big Bear Lake, and reduce the image distortion, which usually occurs when the Sun heats the ground and produces convection in the air just above the ground.
The observatory is located at an altitude of 2067 metres.
The Observatory was built by the California Institute of Technology in 1969 and operated by the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT). Funding for the operation of the observatory is from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the National Science Foundation (NSF), the United States Air Force, the United States Navy and other agencies.
