Astronomical League Observing Clubs

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!

How Do I Get Started?

The best way to start is by picking a club that best suits your interests.  If you are new to astronomy, you may want to pick one of the introductory clubs.  If you're more advanced, you can pick from one of the clubs that contains objects you are interested in observing.  And if you don't have a telescope yet, you can work on several clubs that only require an inexpensive pair of binoculars. We have listed links to all of the clubs below for your convenience.  Just select one to find out more information.   Where available, we have included a link to the downloadable PDF for the Club from the American Association of Amatuer Astronomers.
