Elinor Gates gave a tour of the historic Lick Observatory. Still an active research center, the observatory is home to a one of a kind refractor telescope. Constructed in 1867, the observatory is now operated by the University of California Observatories and serves as a research center for scientists, astronomers, and university students.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2017 LCV Cities Tour” in San Jose, California, from February 4-10 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Comcast cable local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. The history segments air on American History TV (AHTV) on C-SPAN3 and the literary events/non-fiction author segments air on Book TV on C-SPAN2. close
