Make an impact on the next generation of explorers

Vanderbilt Dyer Observatory is focused on our mission to inspire student and public interest in science through experiencing the wonders of astronomy and space exploration.

Exploration has been at the heart and soul of America’s history, economic strength, and world prestige. Making science a priority inspires, motivates, and creates the next generation of explorers.

We are a non-profit organization sustained by the generosity of the university community, friends, and neighbors. Your gift will make a tremendous difference in our efforts to bring science and exploration to the next generation.
