A snowy day at the Very Large Array! ✨It's a snowy day at the Very Large Array today. ❄️❄️❄️

One of the questions we get on our Very Large Array virtual tours: what do we do when snow gets into the antennas? Well, we run a computer script called "snow dump" that executes a series of three commands:

1) tilt the dish down to its lowest limit to dump the snow out of the dish;
2) turn the dishes perpendicular to the wind, so the snow is blown out;
3) position the antennas toward the Sun, or the staircase leading up to the dish, so the crew can sweep it out.
