2015 ASP Annual Report

Dear Friend,

I am pleased to present the ASP Annual Report for 2015, the 126th anniversary of the Society. You’ll see that we accomplished a great deal last year in support of our mission to improve science literacy through the excitement of astronomy.

ASP’s nationally acclaimed programs are expanding, serving astronomy lovers of all ages, from young children to amateurs and professionals. We support science museums, park rangers, K-12 schools, amateur clubs, and early career astronomy faculty to bring the awe and wonder of astronomy and space science to audiences they reach.

In 2016, we began work on exciting new NASA funded programs. This includes ASP’s new partnership with the Girl Scouts, where we will help develop astronomy badges and provide scout leaders with training and support. We are also partnering with the Science Museum of Minnesota to bring NASA science content to several hundred museums across the country.

Please consider making a contribution to the ASP today so we can build on last year’s tremendous success and expand our work.

Together we are bringing the excitement of astronomy to a new generation of enthusiasts and professionals. On behalf of the staff and all the audiences we serve, thank you for your support of the ASP.
