Your ignorance is truly stunning. No, really. I mean it. That is quite the silliest astronomically-based thing you have said today.
No, genius. Many telescopes are in places that are very high to be away from light and ground level pollution. Others are in places that were dark when they were built and are suffering by the growth around them now. Like the Griffith Park Observatory. When built, LA was a town, not a megaopolis. It's why many are in the SW US, too. Less people, less light, better view. Even drier air, few clouds, etc. is factored in.
Here's an article about it.
Where is a good place to build a telescope?
The South Pole Telescope (SPT) is a 10 meter (394 in) diameter telescope located at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station, Antarctica. It is a microwave/millimeter-wave telescope that observes in a frequency range between 70 and 300 GHz.
The Degree Angular Scale Interferometer (DASI) is a telescope located in Antarctica. It is a 13-element interferometer operating between 26 and 36 GHz in ten bands. The instrument is similar in design to the Cosmic Background Imager and the Very Small Array.
The Arcminute Cosmology Bolometer Array Receiver (ACBAR) was designed to make sensitive, high-resolution measurements of the microwave sky at multiple millimeter wavelengths. Observations of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) can provide a wealth of information about the universe. Measurement of the angular power spectrum of the CMB allows us to determine the values of the cosmological parameters (such as the age, density, and composition of the universe) within the context of models of the early universe.
QUaD, an acronym for QUEST at DASI, is a ground based cosmic microwave backrground (CMB) polarization experiment located at the South Pole.
The Viper telescope is used to view mainly cosmic background radiation. Currently the telescope is helping scientists prove or disprove the Big Crunch theory. The telescope is also one of the most powerful of its kind. Previous cosmic background telescopes were smaller and did not have the ability to focus on the detailed measurement of distant clouds that Viper does.

The problem is, the "proof" that there is no massive star heading on a collision course with Earth has been posted on ATS about 2.5 billion times before, and probably will be again. No offense, but I don't think I need to go link chasing when every Niburu thread on ATS, including this one, has sourced, common sense evidence that we are not going to be hit by this hypothetical object.
A object of this mass would cause gravitational disturbances that would account for far more destruction than a slight uptick in earthquakes and Volcanic activity. The problem with assuming that there is an uptick is the fact that with the way the world is connected via the internet (mobile phones, tablets, laptops, etc), there is virtually no place on this planet that there isn't an internet connection within 20-30 miles, and that's being generous. So even in those 3rd world countries where news services aren't up to snuff, we're still going to get the information because people post it themselves. So the idea that there is some massive uptick in "Earth Changes" can be accounted for by the fact that at no point in history have we been so interconnected, and the effort to report major ecological disasters is easy at best.

In my thread that I started on 10/28/10 I believe I captured the same blue image. There were also chemtrails and a the rising sun.
THE CLOSE UP:
Love to hear your thoughts

were feeling the gravitational effects right now as well as other planets, are u aware of how many volcanoes are active right now?
LOTS and were talkin ones that have been dormant for thousands of years ...thier all poppin like champaign corks, if u were to put a suction cup (gravitation pull from another planet) on earth then what wud happen is that volcanoes wud start to erupt as the lava is literally sucked out.
if we were to have a shift of the earths innards, all the tetonic plates rubbin off on each other (again caused by gravitational pull) then we get earthquakes and thus leads to volcanic eruptions.
i know earthquakes and volcanoes are normal but in no way is the frequency and severity of the latest quakes and eruptions are normal! no way...but im sure u know all this
