Are there one or more people in your life that are age 10 or younger?  Would you like to get the "into" astronomy but are not sure where to begin?  The Astronomical League has an Observing Program created just for them.  We are now providing this program in conjunction with the NASA Solar System Education Consortium.  If you would like more information, check out the Astronomical League website at:


Want to complete more Observing Programs?

Have you ever wanted to start and complete more of the Astronomical League’s observing programs but just didn’t know how? Mike Hotka’s new book, Exploring Amateur Astronomy – Goal Oriented Observing, will not only help you start more observing programs, but will also share an observing methodology to help you get more out of your observing sessions. Mike is a Platinum Master Observer and has completed all but four of the currently existing observing programs. In his book, he shares tips and tricks he learned throughout the years of how to overcome some of these program’s learning curves, so that you can start recording observations sooner. He wrote this book because of his love of astronomy and his desire to share his knowledge of observing celestial objects with others.
