The Mount Wilson and Palomar Observatories are situated on two Southern California mountains: the one, Mount Wilson, about 30 miles by road north of Pasadena; and the other, Palomar Mountain, about 130 miles to the southeast. The two observatories, together with the administrative and research centers in Pasadena, are operated jointly by the Carnegie Institution of Washington and the California Institute of Technology in a broad, coordinated program of astronomical research. It is because the two observatories take part in this one unified program that both are included in this one hook. It would he impossible to talk about the past, present, or future of one without reference to the other. Both observatories are largely the result of the lifework of one man: the astronomer George Ellery Hale.
