Streets and Ladders
Today's image is titled Streets and Ladders and was photographed by Maciej Smuga.
This photo shows Dayton Street on the south end of the UW campus, the photographer explains, as seen 'through the latticework support structure for the MODIS tracking antenna, on the roof of the AOSS building." What are all of those acronyms? The AOSS building is the Atmospheric, Oceanic and Space Science Building, located at the corner of Dayton and Orchard streets a couple of blocks from Camp Randall. MODIS is shorthand for moderate resolution imaging spectroradiometer, the name for the satellite tracking antenna that's capped by a 22-foot radome shell, and is variously referred to as the golf ball or building virus.
