Fillin' out my bucket list
I also went here over the weekend. It was not the spiritual experience of a 400 year old place of worship, but it was a great geek moment.
The view I had was more like this, though.
The best part was, while standing next to one (there's a walking tour, you actually get to stand by one of them. In that picture above you can just make out some buildings on the right; that's there the tour takes you) as it readjusted its position. All the others moved synchronously (the dishes, not the actual antenna base; those are moved manually).
We decided it was contacting the Mother Ship, and that it was time to go. Besides, it was very much a "wind-swept" plain, and even in the mild New Mexico spring, the temperature was a bit brisk."
(And no, these are not my pictures.)
