About Resource Sharing Programs

Astronomy enthusiasts love to share their passion for astronomy with others, and to encourage others to make the night sky a part of their lives. Resource-sharing programs provide the opportunity to share knowledge, experience, digital materials, printed matter, equipment, and more. Whether it’s basic necessities for astronomy clubs, materials for schools in need, or sharing the experiences of different cultures, we all have resources that are treasures to others.
