DUdley Observatory is a great public institution in New York's capital district. THough there has not been an actual observatory for many years, Dudley has been holding public events introducing people to the night sky; training Rising Star interns, their parents and teachers, to use telescopes and show things at public events; sponsoring lectures by knowledgeable speakers and authors; and generally keeping astronomy, its uses, and its history, alive and growing. It was great fun to be part of the recreation of a historic group photograph during their anniversary a couple of years ago. Author Dava Sobel was the guest of honor.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

promote its education programs throughout the area and build a home for students to do astronomy research.
