The ASP just released it's 2023 Annual Report sharing with you the incredible work and accomplishments achieved toward helping research astronomers, amateur astronomers, and science educators bring the awe of astronomy to their communities, and by doing so, increasing public interest and appreciation for science more generally.

Your support gives access to the innovative professional development training, enrichment programs, materials and resources the ASP is renowned for. 

Two solar eclipses crossed over the United States within six months of each other on October 14, 2023 and April 8, 2024 – a once in a lifetime event for over 32 million people living inside the path of totality alone.

Fostering a lifelong interest in the cosmos and developing science literacy through the wonder of astronomy has been the core mission of the ASP for almost 134 years. In 1889 a passionate group of amateur photographers and astronomers traveled 100 miles north of San Francisco to witness totality and capture images of the celestial event for the first time. Their profound experience bound the group together, inspiring them to form a new kind of science society – the Astronomical Society of the Pacific (ASP). The group dedicated themselves to sharing their love of astronomy with the public through education and outreach.  

All donors who give $100 or more will receive a limited-edition ASP commemorative 1 1/4" diameter pin celebrating the 2023 and 2024 North American Solar Eclipses
