The Stanford Radio Astronomy Observatory (historically known as "Heliopolis"), located at Stanford Field Site 515, is where 11 years of daily microwave sun maps were produced and where a radio telescope, in the form of a compound interferometer, first achieved the angular resolution of the human eye (one arcminute). It was also here that the first discovery was made revealing the direction of motion of our solar system relative to the cosmic background.

I walked in to these today and they are gone. (At least the three to the east; I couldn't get to the one to the west.) There are a few foundation blocks with rusted steel on top but nothing else. (6/10/2006)
