    I love astronomy. Someday (night) I need to get out there before light pollution gets worse. But a long drive home in the dark for an old guy. Perhaps I’ll make it before Halley’s comet makes another run at the sun!

    It is a real pleasure to see this organization and its wonderful observatory succeed. Whether it is educating visitors or hosting scientific research, it makes the Adirondacks culturally richer and immeasurably smarter. And it gives us all another reason to support wilderness — it protects much more than water quality and wildlife (as if that wasn’t enough). It allows Adirondackers to look directly into the heavens.
