ASP Membership

Join/Renew Membership

It is one of the places I go for accurate and knowledgeable astronomical information.

I enjoy keeping up to date with “PASP” and I enjoy Mercury magazine. I value the astronomical avenues open to me as a technical member. I look forward to events and publications.

Great organization! I cannot think of any improvements that I could recommend. It is an honor to be a “regular” member!
