     Many of our society members agree that there are quite extensive websites offering a great amount of knowledge posted by our neighboring organizations.  We link to them on our site for your education and enjoyment.  We applaud their efforts and accomplishments.
     It is quite evident that we have a strong vital astronomical association in the Delaware Valley and New England area.

     Please contact us if you would like your organization included.  Knowledge is most effective when it is shared and understood by others.  Help us spread our Astronomical knowledge with all who are interested.
