More links

I have added a few more links to our Links & Resources page (with more to come!).

Spaceweather.com (http://www.spaceweather.com/) (this website never gets old!) is the NASA Space Weather Bureau, and is packed with science news and information about the Sun-Earth environment. It delivers real-time space weather forecasts, space weather news, pictures, news and information about meteor showers, solar flares, auroras, and near-Earth asteroids. You can sign up and receive space weather alerts – which we highly recommend!

The International Dark-Sky Association (http://www.darksky.org/) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to raise awareness and “to preserve and protect the nighttime environment and our heritage of dark skies through quality outdoor lighting.” Our club occasionally sponsors events to promote their message.

Skymaps.com (http://www.skymaps.com/) offers free monthly sky maps, along with a monthly sky calendar of current objects to view with binoculars, telescopes or naked-eye.

The Astronomy League (http://www.astroleague.org/) is the organization that Amy and I (and our whole club) belongs to. It promotes astronomy through local clubs that hold public events, and represents 240 organizations across the U.S. Membership includes a magazine called The Reflector, and offers a large number of observing awards (several of them Amy and I are working on). Great way to feel connected to other amateur astronomers, and you don’t need a local club to join.

Please keep your suggestions coming in!
