The Dudley Observatory, chartered by the State of New York in 1852, is the oldest independent organization in the United States supporting research and education in astronomy and the history of astronomy. Our library contains one of the world's finest collections of historically significant astronomical texts, including rare books of Copernicus, Galileo, and Kepler. The Dudley Observatory Archives is a fascinating collection of historical records pertaining to both astronomy and Albany.
The current focus of the Dudley Observatory is on using astronomy to promote science education, with an emphasis on education, recruitment and early career development in science and technology. We have enjoyed a great deal of success with projects that fire the imaginations of the young, nurture them through the early stages of career development, and instill a life-long appreciation and enjoyment of science.
