Updated on August 9, 2022, 9:34 am
The Kitt Peak National Observatory is located on Kitt Peak of the Quinlan Mountains in the Arizona-Sonoran Desert on the Tohono O'odham Nation. With over twenty optical and two radio telescopes, it is one of the largest gatherings of astronomical instruments in the northern hemisphere.
The Wisconsin-Indiana-Yale-NOIRLab (WIYN) Observatory is situated atop Kitt Peak National Observatory. It is owned and operated by the WIYN Consortium, which consists of the University of Wisconsin, Indiana University, NOIRLab, Purdue University and the University of California - Irvine. This partnership between public and private universities and NOIRLab was the first of its kind. The telescope hosts the NEID instrument, which is a state-of-the-art exoplanet-discovery machine.
