The biggest astromech in the Universe lives in Carleton College, Northfield, Minnesota. Some crazy students decided to turn the Goodsell Observatory into RD-D2 using a temporary disguise.

File comment: Built in the late 1890s, Goodsell Observatory houses three historic telescopes (all more than 110 years old) as well as modern telescopes used for classes and open houses. The building is on the National Register of Historic Places.
