Tidbinbilla – in 1965 and 2006


Move your mouse over the photo to see Tidbinbilla in 1965 – and in August 2006.

Note that the images are large and may take a few moments to load. Also, the field of view only covers the central area of the 2006 complex.


The photos are taken from approximately the same location, near the water tanks.

The images are aligned on the original DSN Operations Building – therefore the background hills are slightly out of register.
DSS-42 (the antenna in the 1965 image) was decommissioned and dismantled in December 2000.
