The Lick Observatory was built in 1888 on Mount Hamilton, just east of San Jose. Lick is home to the Shane Telescope, which uses a massive 120-inch reflector. The observatory is constantly being used by all the UCs and has led to many discoveries including several exoplanets and Near Earth Asteroids.
