Long Mountain
Progress May 20, 2011 at Montgomery Bell Academy's Long Mountain Observatory near
McMinnville, TN.  The observatory's exterior and interior security cameras and dome cameras are
installed and internet accessible. The instruments to monitor weather conditions and cloud cover
are also installed, and will be uploading data soon.  Below are some pictures of the facility
showing the classroom roof open.  The roof appears to dip down toward the direction of the viewer,
no matter the angle. This optical illusion is particularly evident in the image showing the eastern
side with the roof open.
