Rocky Alvey (right), observatory manager of Vanderbilt Dyer Observatory, discusses the operation of Dyer’s 24-inch telescope with first-year students from The Commons. Built in 1953 on a hilltop south of the Vanderbilt campus, Dyer was recently named to the National Register of Historic Places as a site of historical significance. Today, it is dedicated to education and public outreach.
