Clark 125th Anniversary | First Light

On July 23, 1896, Lowell Observatory’s 24-inch Clark Refractor saw first light. Thus began the life of one of the world’s most storied telescopes. Join Lowell astronomer Stephen Levine and historian Kevin Schindler as they recount the events leading up to the Clark’s first light and then compare this process to that followed in developing today’s Lowell Discovery Telescope.
