Fred Lawrence Whipple Observatory (FLWO)

The FLWO is the largest field installation of the Smithsonian Institution Astrophysical Observatory (SAO) outside of Cambridge, MA. Since October 1968, the FLWO has been used as the site for experiments requiring extremely dark skies, dry climate, and good optical "seeing." The MMT is located on Mt Hopkins and is one of many facilities on the mountain that are under the umbrella of the FLWO. The FLWO maintains the mountain road, and the community buildings as well as supplies all custodial services on the mountain. If you have any inquiries relating to the FLWO as a whole rather than MMT specific, please use the contacts below.
