The Meziere Family Observatory was built by senior physics major Kyle Meziere and his father. The 10-foot diameter dome was donated to the UD Physics Department for student and faculty use. Mr. Meziere and his family (shown along with Mr. Arthur Sweeney on the right) hauled the observatory from San Diego to its temporary location at the home of adjunct physics professor Mr. Arthur Sweeney over the Thanksgiving holidays. The department hopes to move the observatory to a dark site outside of the Dallas-Ft. Worth area as soon as an appropriate site is determined. The physics faculty deeply appreciate this generous donation and will do their best to make sure many UD students are able to use the facility for observations and research.
