The FPOA Patch

The FPOA Patch

This distinctive patch is available for sale at the Fremont Peak Observatory from any FPOA volunteer interpreter.

On the patch is a silhouette of the observatory with the roof in the rolled-off configuration, ready for a night of viewing.  The white horizontal area represents the fog from Monterey Bay, making the sky dark.  Fremont Peak itself is shown in silhouette above the fog, with the red lights of the TV transmission tower found there.  Behind the peak, the summer Milky Way is shown setting in the west, along with an (unrecognizable) constellation of bright stars.
