The Very Large Array, one of the world's premier astronomical radio observatories, consists of 27 radio antennas in a Y-shaped configuration on the Plains of San Agustin fifty miles west of Socorro, New Mexico. Each antenna is 25 meters/82 feet in diameter. The data from the antennas is combined electronically to give the resolution of an antenna 36 km/22 miles across, with the equivalent sensitivity of a dish 130 meters/422 feet in diameter.
Some digital effects were applied to the original image after the photograph was made. No electrons were harmed during the transition.
