Additional Details:
Nine antennas along the VLA's "North Arm" track a radio source across the sky. The dish-shaped reflectors of these radio telescopes are 25 m (82 ft) in diameter. Three such arms forming the Very Large Array, are used by astronomers to study stars, planets, the Milky Way and the most distant galaxies.
