Connecting space enthusiasts with the real night sky through local astronomy club events.
The Night Sky Network (NSN) is a nationwide coalition of amateur astronomy clubs bringing the science, technology, and inspiration of NASA science to their communities. NSN clubs share their time and telescopes to provide the public with unique astronomy experiences at science museums, observatories, classrooms, and under the real night sky. NSN serves as a vital communications and public engagement infrastructure resource for NASA.
The Night Sky Network connects interested space enthusiasts with the real night sky through local astronomy clubs and events. Astronomy clubs are supported with the latest in NASA research, outreach, and education materials. Building on more than a decade of club support, we provide activities designed for use in astronomy club settings, offer webinars on the latest NASA science, and support club event planning with an extensive calendar of events across the country. All materials are freely available, linking individuals with their local astronomy clubs and offering a catalog of outreach materials and archived webinars on a plethora of observing topics. We continue to increase our support and offerings to clubs dedicated to astronomy outreach, as well as connect them with NASA programs and missions.
