Victoria, BC, Canada

Earlier this year I posted some photos of the Gonzales Observatory, which is no longer functioning as an astronomical observatory. Recently I visited a working observatory, the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory, sited on the summit of a small mountain overlooking the city. Above is a view of Victoria from the observatory.
