The Astronomical League is an umbrella organization of amateur astronomy societies.[1] Currently their membership consists of over 240 organizations across the United States, along with a number of Members-at-Large, Patrons, and Supporting members.[2]

The mission of the Astronomical League is to promote the science of astronomy through encouraging public interest via local astronomy clubs.

The Astronomical League provides a number of observing awards to members locating and describing certain specified astronomical objects or events, and produces a periodical publication, The Reflector.

The Astronomical League is an alliance organization of the Meade 4M Community who supports the League's National Young Astronomer's Award and the Leslie C. Peltier Award.


Awards given by the league include the Leslie C. Peltier Award, the Jack Horkheimer Award and the National Young Astronomer's Award.
