Amateur Astronomers

Big Astronomy

Big Astronomy: People, Places, Discoveries delivers a unique learning experience for planetarium visitors around the world by integrating virtual interactions with those living and working at Chilean observatories with curricular resources and a planetarium show. The ASP is creating toolkits of informal activities for amateur astronomers and museum educators to be released with the planetarium show in 2020.

Testing a Toolkit of Materials

Winter, 2019 - the ASP is in the testing phase of a toolkit of materials for amateur astronomers and museums. Here we are demonstrating the activities to send out for testing with clubs and museums across the country and showing what each toolkit includes.

Sign up to find out the release of the show and activities May 2nd, 2020!
