  • Astronomical League Observing Clubs  ( 2 items )

    While observing itself is a great goal, learning and being recognized for your accomplishments makes it even better.  To help you learn and stay motivated, the Astronomical League has developed several Observing Clubs which recognize you for observing and recording thousands of different astronomical objects.  You can earn certificates and pins for your efforts.  And because Astronomical League membership is included in NEFAS membership, all our members have to do is pick a club and start observing!
