BARS::National Solar Observatory at Sacramento Peak in New Mexico

This entrance sign is to the National Solar Observatory located atop New Mexico's Sacramento Peak.

The entrance sign says...

   +--------------------------------+
   |         Welcome to the         |
   |    National SolarObservatory   |
   |       at Sacramento Peak       |
   | Visiting Hours: Daily, 8am-6pm |
   |     please drive carefully     |
   |            CAUTION             |
   |      Altitude: 9,250 feet      |
   |                2,819 meters    |
   |        Please Walk Slowly      |
   +--------------------------------+
   the numbers are:  8  6  9250  2819

   the math is:  8 - 6 = ceil(9250 / 2819)
   * 9250 / 2819 = 1.81143739

   more math:  floor(8 / 6) = floor(9250 / 2819)
               ceil(8 / 6) = ceil(9250 / 2819)
   * 8 / 6 = 1.33333333

   keeping the units attached to the numbers 9250 and 2819:
   let... 9250 ft / 2819 m = 1

   the numbers are:  8  6  1

   rsStateEval:  8 * 6 - 1 = 47
   * New Mexico was the 47th state admitted to the Union

   BARSfunc math:  sqrt(summation(1, 8)) = 6
   * summation(1, 8) = 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8 = 36

   BARSfunc math:  defactorial(6) - 1 = cuberoot(8)
   * defactorial(6) = 3 because 3! = 6

   spf(9250) = 2+5+5+5+37 = 54 ... 2819 is prime
   * spf(n) = the sum of the prime factors of n

NM Hwy-6563 is used to get to the National Solar Observatory and 6563 is a prime number.
