Clark Telescope 125th Anniversary Mug
In June 2021, Lowell Observatory Celebrates the building of it's famous Clark 24" Refractor telescope.
Founder Percival Lowell commissioned the Alvan Clark & Sons Firm of Cambridgeport, Massachusetts to build a state-of-the-art 24-inch refracting telescope. Since completion of the project the following year, the telescope has been in regular use to view the heavens and help unravel the wonders of the universe.
The Clark Telescope is one of seven structures listed in the Observatory’s 1964 Registered National Historic Landmark designation. In 1999, First Lady Hillary Clinton recognized Lowell Observatory and, specifically, the Clark, as a site worthy of preservation as part of her Save America’s Treasures program. Visitors to Lowell Observatory can take a look through this historic telescope.
