How you can help amateur astronomy

The Astronomical League strives to support the endeavors of amateur astronomers across the USA. Our internationally respected Observing Programs, Reflector magazine, Youth Awards and programs, Recognition and Achievement Awards, Outreach efforts and materials, and Dark Sky advocacy – and so much more – are all made possible by the support of our members and those who generously donate their time, expertise, and money.

Without the efforts and participation of people like you, the Astronomical League would not be the major amateur astronomy organization that it is today!
