The Detroit Observatory is planning for a reopening in the Fall of 2021. In preparation for the new building additions and exhibits we are gathering information on influential astronomers associated with the University of Michigan. Two such astronomers are Asaph Hall and Asaph Hall Junior, both of whom spent time working at the Detroit Observatory during their lengthy astronomy-based careers. Their important work and life stories have also been documented to the public through updated Wikipedia articles.
