"The ASP was a pioneer in public outreach programs. Today, the entire astronomical community embraces such efforts as an increasingly important means to foster awareness of scientific progress and appreciation of the excitement of contemporary research. Any contribution today can have a larger-than-life impact on our society's educational efforts."
-Leif J. Robinson, Editor Emeritus, Sky & Telescope

With your support the ASP can continue to:

  • unite the interests and expertise of scientists, educators, amateur astronomers, and astronomy enthusiasts;
  • provide resources and tools to assist educators of all types;
  • recognize and honor extraordinary contributions to astronomy, amateur astronomy, and astronomy education;
  • communicate the excitement of astronomy to educators and to students of all ages
