The Dudley Observatory has served as a model in the community in its science and astronomy outreach. The Observatory manages a fulfilling annual internship program and coordinates lecture series and astronomy educational events. If there is an astronomy event scheduled in the area, you can always count on a Dudley representative to be there with a telescope and educational materials.

Dudley's collection of historic books and astronomical artifacts is impressive, as are its education and outreach activities, at both the professional and amateur levels. Especially exciting is Dudley's role in bringing the excitement of science to the public. Dudley's vision says it all: The Dudley Observatory, chartered by the State of New York in 1852, is the oldest independent organization in the country supporting research and education in astronomy and the history of astronomy. Our vision is to be a nationally recognized center for educational outreach and historical research in astronomy that is vibrant and expanding its impact, programming, and resources through both its own unique efforts and partnerships with other leading organizations.

Dudley has several interesting and important roles in astronomy and our society. It is an historical observatory with world class contributions. It an the repository of several historical telescopes and several ultra-precise mechanical clocks. In addition it has a modern role of bringing modern astronomy to the public, and another in inspiring middle and high school children to enjoy science through the excitement of direct observation of the skies, and of rapidly-movbing modern astronomy. Its board members and staff are excellent and devoted individuals.
