Adam Block makes his home in Tucson, Arizona. He is currently creating a public observatory on Mt. Lemmon, just north of Tucson, which will offer premier access to the universe. With the ubiquity of light polluted skies, the observatory and its programs will educate the public on the dwindling windows of dark night skies. Inspiration and appreciation of this endangered natural resource will be achieved through unique stargazing programs, advanced observing opportunities, special events, and workshops.
