The WIYN 3.5-meter Telescope at Work

The WIYN 3.5-meter Telescope, one of the newest telescopes at Kitt Peak National Observatory (KPNO), is seen on a busy observing night. As the host of the NEID instrument, much of its time is spent looking for exoplanets. From its perch atop Kitt Peak, it looks at other stars and helps us answer the question: "Are we alone?"
