Our Vision

Young Astronomers Discover the Stars

Young Astronomers Discover the Stars

The Dudley Observatory strives to be a nationally recognized center
for education and outreach in astronomy.

Our Mission

The Dudley Observatory provides education and outreach programs
designed to bring the wonders of science, particularly astronomy, to
people of all ages. We cultivate interest and
understanding of science, history of science, science careers and
scientists, and help non-scientists appreciate science in an
approachable and enjoyable way.

All Dudley Observatory programs and events are developed with this
mission in mind.
