How about you attach a placemark of it, too :)

My favorite would have to be the Parkes Observatory, Australias biggest radio telescope :)

Cool! :D

Another great one is Arecibo (http://www.googleearthhacks.com/dlfile8961/Arecibo-Observatory,-Puerto-Rico-(Overlay).htm) - What a beautiful dish!!

Anyone know any lesser known ones? we may just be able to get all the observatories in the world together this way! (and that would be super cool!)

Hmm... I think there are a few in Germany and France. How about the Buran in Moscow? I'd like to drive that thing to work! There's also JPL at Caltech.
