In Focus: Welcoming party

Last week, the much anticipated Muon g-2 magnet, a 50-foot-wide monstrosity, finally arrived on the campus of the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia. 

As I arrived for the event, members of the media were briefed in a conference room at Wilson Hall and given orange safety vests.

We then left on a bus to follow the magnet as it approached Wilson Hall to be welcomed by throngs of visitors stretching their necks over the crowd to see the equipment – with a police escort – arrive.

The magnet already had traveled by barge, and then by truck, thousands of miles from Long Island, N.Y.

As the magnet made its way slowly down the main road at Fermi, a few of the other photographers and I hurried through the crowd to take the elevator up to the 15th floor of Wilson Hall to watch the truck’s arrival.

It was a great view.
