The name of our center is NASA’s Ames Research Center. We are located in Moffett Field, California, which is considered its own city. We are not in Mountain View, California. If preferred for clarity, we can be referred to as “near Mountain View,” or “in California’s Silicon Valley.” 

Also resident at Moffett Field are the NASA Research Park and its tenants, who lease rooms or buildings on the Moffett campus. While Ames manages the NASA Research Park, these tenants are not located at Ames, and should not be implied to have further NASA affiliation, unless NASA otherwise states a relationship.
