Lowell Observatory educator Victoria Girgis gives a live tour of Lowell Observatory that spans more than 90 years. Beginning at the Pluto Discovery Telescope, she talks about the observatory’s discovery of Pluto in 1930. Then she moves to the modern Giovale Open Deck Observatory, a public observing plaza that opened in October 2019 and houses six advanced telescopes.
