By JOE STONE Source ESPN Staff WriterShades of a glass dome, a pair of giant LED screens, a digital glass window and a bright star are just a few of the sights to emerge from a visit to the top of Mount Wilson in northern Victoria.
The telescope will open to the public on Monday at 11am local time (4pm AEDT) from the Observatory House.
As a matter of tradition, it will open with a public viewing.
It will take place from 11am until 3pm AEST on Saturday and Sunday.
Its launch comes amid concerns about the coronavirus pandemic, and the potential impact of Australia’s large population of foreign workers, who have often worked in Australia.
A new federal government program, the “Immigration Skills Trainee Visa”, has been rolled out, allowing people to work in Australia for up to five years, while they complete a two-year training course.
But the Government has said that as of today, visa holders are still required to have a valid visa and have a “good reason” to work.
If they do not, they face deportation, as do all visa holders.
So, the first time visitors to the Mount Wilson Observatory will be able to look through a telescope at Mount Wilson, the country’s biggest astronomical site, will be on the first Saturday of September.
Australian astronomers have also been working hard to get the Observatory to operate on a tighter budget.
There are two telescopes at the Observatory, each measuring 5,500×2,200m.
These are two of Australia, and one of them is an international facility, located at the top, with a massive dome and a view over Australia.
Australia’s top telescope: Australia’s top astronomer is the man behind the telescope at the Mount Tom.
When Australia hosted the International Astronomical Union’s International Astronomy Congress in 2019, a crowd of over 4,000 attended.
Sir Isaac Newton was among those who spoke, saying the telescope would help the country better understand the universe.

With the help of a private company, the Observatory is in line to get $1.5 million from the federal government for its new construction.
The money will allow the Observatory house to be completed in time for the coronivirus pandemics.
We are very much on track to receive the new $1 billion project in the second quarter of 2018.
It will be a really great thing for us to be able be able contribute to the funding of the construction of the new telescope, Sir Isaac Newton, former Head of the Observatoryhouse, told the ABC.
The $1 million will allow for the telescope to be built and ready for operation in the first quarter of 2020.
“We’re on track,” Sir Isaac told the radio program “Astronomy Talk”.
“This will be the best thing that’s ever happened to Australia and Australia has a very good reputation and a very important role to play in astronomy.”
The Observatory is the largest in the world.
It is built on a hilltop in the middle of Mount Tom, which is more than 5,000m tall.
On the night of July 4, 1818, a huge explosion was heard at the peak of Mount Watney, which has been described as the “most spectacular explosion of the year”.
The explosion was caused by an explosive bolt from the sky, but no-one was hurt.
Scientists say the explosive sound of the explosion could have been heard as far away as Sydney, New York and Boston.
According to the Observatory’s website, Mount Watneys eruption “caused the collapse of a tower in the nearby town of Watney at the time and resulted in the eruption of the entire North West Mountain, which then proceeded to crash onto the North West Plateau and caused a major tsunami that devastated the coastline and resulted with extensive damage and destruction.”
“A huge amount of the debris from the event has been washed into the Tasman Sea.
This material is now being collected and preserved,” the Observatory said.”
This includes more than 6,000 metres of granite, more than 1,000 kilometres of quartzite and a rock that has been in the ground since it was formed at Mount Watsey, as well as several large boulders that have been floating in the Tasman River.”
The Institute of Astronomy has an award-winning facility at the observatory.
In 2018, the institute received a $100,000 grant from the Australian Government to fund the Observatory.
Institute of Astronomical Sciences director of research, Prof Ian Wright, said the Observatory would be a vital part of the countrys scientific community.
