Description: 
ED10-0115-21 A sharp eye can pick out faint specks of stars reflected by the 100-inch 2.5 meter primary mirror on NASA's Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy SOFIA during ground testing of the Faint Object Infrared Camera for the SOFIA Telescope FORCAST. The line operations tests at the Dryden Aircraft Operations Facility in Palmdale, Calif., enabled the SOFIA aircraft, telescope, and FORCAST teams to prepare for the flying observatory's 'first light' astronomical science flights.
