Dan Zowada Memorial Observatory
The Dan Zowada Memorial Observatory is a state-of-the-art 20-inch robotically-controlled remote observatory in the high desert of Rodeo, NM at an altitude of 4128 feet. This location has some of the darkest skies in the nation! The observatory is named in honor of Michigan amateur astronomer Dan Zowada, who tragically died of cancer at the age of 54.

The observatory was kindly donated to Wayne State University by the 419 Foundation of Russ and Stephanie Carroll.
