- American Association of Amateur
Astronomers - The American Association of Amateur Astronomers
is an organization for you and by you. When you are not close to
an astronomy club, or when your local club does not offer the benefits
of membership in the Astronomical League, you can find a home here.
We welcome everyone interested in astronomy, no matter what their
level of expertise - from novice to nationally recognized expert.
We are an organization for all amateurs, with interests ranging
from observing and astrophotography to CCD imaging, armchair astronomy,
and the Internet.
- Astronomy Net - Employing
widely disparate disciplines astronomy boldly attempts to understand
nothing less than the universe itself. This site exists to help
you achieve this goal.
- American Meteor Society
- Astronomical Society
of the Pacific - Founded in 1889 by a group of Northern California
professional and amateur astronomers, the ASP has become the largest
general astronomy society in the world, with members from over 70
nations. The Society offers programs and activities for each unique
part of our membership. Mercury magazine is published every other
month to keep our members abreast of developments in astronomy.
Our online (as well as mail-order) catalog offers something for
everyone - from schoolchildren to scientists - distributing engaging
and enlightening materials for both home and classroom. The ASP's
Annual Meeting moves from city to city around the U.S., bringing
a weekend astronomy expo, teachers' workshops, and scientific
symposia to a new audience each year. To keep up with the most recent
discoveries, anyone can phone the ASP hotline at 415/337-1100 ext.6
for updates on late-breaking astronomy news.
