Column label: HEIGHT

Height above sea level (meters). This need only be known to the nearest 10 meters. After a lapse of a few years, it is again listed in the ``Observatories'' section of the Astronomical Almanac, where you can find it for most established observatories. Topographic maps will provide good enough values for the newer sites.
