Caption: George Ellery Hale (1868-1938), US astronomer. As an undergraduate, Hale invented the spectroheliograph, a device used to study the Sun. He founded a number of observatories, including Yerkes and Mount Wilson, and edited the 'Astrophysical Journal' from 1895. He was awarded the Gold Medal of the Royal Astronomical Society (1904) and the Copley Medal of the Royal Society (1932). The Hale Telescope, the Hale Cycle of solar activity, an asteroid, and craters on the Moon and Mars are named after him. This photograph, dated 22 October 1887, was published in 'Explorer of the Universe: A Biography of George Ellery Hale'.Restrictions:Restrictions:
