Wealth to Share

Treasures from the Internet

This is an annotated directory of websites that are, or should be, of interest to the amateur astronomer. By its nature, it is an incomplete list, with items being continually added and modified. Links to topics of special interest, such as Observing Mars or Observing Saturn, are collected into their own folders which you can open by clicking on the folder titles below. 

We are fortunate to have such a wealth of readily available information presented in colorful and entertaining detail. If you feel we have missed some valuable resource link (which, we will acknowledge, is more than likely) please drop us a line with your suggestion. We will be glad to rectify any oversight on our part. You may use the Feedback form or send e-mail to  

We will attempt to bring some greater sense of organization to our listing of this collection of wonderful resources as we go along. (You may wonder which Solar System body will appear after Saturn and Mars.) In the meantime, enjoy. There is clearly more than enough material here to keep the average person busy for the foreseeable future, or at least until dinnertime - or (yawn) bedtime.
