Dear Friend,

I am pleased to present the Astronomical Society of the Pacific (ASP) Annual Report for 2017. This year marked the 129th anniversary of the Society and, most significantly, the first time in 99 years that a total solar eclipse traversed the continental United States from coast to coast.

Estimates are that over 215 million people watched the “Great American Solar Eclipse” in some fashion. ASP has at the heart many national efforts aimed at ensuring everyone was fully engaged in this once-in-a-lifetime astronomical event. We also focused our attention on reaching underserved communities both on and off the path of totality.

This year we are focusing our annual report on the historic Great American Eclipse and our success in engaging literally hundreds of thousands of people in the awe and wonder of this rare celestial alignment. Thanks to you, the ASP supported astronomy enthusiasts of every kind, trained astronomy educators working in many different types of learning environments, and created innovative astronomy education activities and materials to help people understand why eclipses happen.

Together with friends like you, we are bringing the excitement of astronomy to new generations of enthusiasts and professionals. On behalf of all of the audiences we serve, thank you.

Sincerely,

Linda S. Shore Ed.D
Chief Executive Officer
Astronomical Society of the Pacific
