Sheep paddock
One of the memorable lines from the movie The Dish comes after a politician says to the Prime Minister "Turns out that Parkes is the biggest radio telescope in the Southern Hemisphere." The Prime Minister replies "What's it doing in the middle of a sheep paddock?" As this photo from the ATNF Image Archive confirms, there can be little argument with this observation. And, with the festive season approaching, we wish everyone a "Fleece Navidad"!
