The Mount Abu InfraRed Observatory (MIRO) is located near the town Mount Abu in the state of Rajasthan, India. The observatory is at an altitude of 1680 metres and is adjacent to Guru Shikhar, highest peak of the Aravalli Range. The 1.2 m infrared telescope at It is the first major facility in India specifically designed for ground-based, infrared observations of celestial objects. Further the low amount of precipitable water vapour (1–2 mm during winter) at Guru Shikhar makes it a good site for the infrared telescope observations. The site has been found to be good (about 150 cloud free nights per year) for astronomical observations.

dbo:abstract
  • L'Observatoire infrarouge du mont Abu (en anglais Mount Abu InfraRed Observatory, MIRO) est un observatoire astronomique situé près de la ville de Mont-Abu, dans l'État du Rajasthan. L'observatoire est à une altitude de 1680 mètres et est adjacent au Guru Shikhar, le plus haut sommet des Aravalli. Le est la première grande installation en Inde spécifiquement conçue pour les observations infrarouges au sol d'objets célestes. En outre, la faible quantité de vapeur d'eau précipitable (1-2 millimètres pendant l'hiver) au en fait un bon site pour les observations avec le télescope infrarouge. Avec 150 nuits sans nuage par an, c'est un bon site pour les observations astronomiques. (fr)
