Motivating amateur astronomy through the Astronomical League

Join me (Skip Bird) as we explore the universe of exploring.

OUR MISSION: “To Promote the Science of Astronomy!  Our basic goal is to encourage an interest in astronomy (and especially amateur astronomy) throughout America.”

Learn the In’s, the Outs, and the Really you can see that, about observing. Learn how to hone your skills, come up with even more excuses as to why you need that “expensive, larger, trip to the winter star party” to complete your observing list. Not to mention the really “cool” pins and Certificates (with your name on them) you get when you do.

Wayne “Skip” Bird is presently the Outreach Director/Night Sky Network Guru for the Westminster [Md.] Astronomical Society, and outreach fanatic (definition of fanatic: someone who will not change his mind AND will not change the subject). He is also a “Mad” Science, Physics and Astronomy teacher for a Homeschool association. He is the world renowned author of “Night Flying Astronomy Bird” articles (OK, maybe world renowned is being a little modest), and is the “World’s Greatest Dad”. He has the button to prove it, but enough about me.
