Day 33 of 365

Dominion Observatory

Dominion Observatory

The Dominion Observatory, an astronomical observatory in Ottawa, Canada that operated from 1902 to 1970.

The observatory grew out of the Department of the Interior’s need for the precise coordinates and timekeeping that, at that time, could only come from an observatory.

The artsy brickwork is something to behold.

I’m watching the clock at it ticks down to the end of the world – actually, I’ll probably be asleep when it happens at 6:20 A.M. EST (or so) tomorrow (Friday).
