I’ve mentioned the Astronomy Foundation a few times in my blogs — it’s the 2-year-old organization of telescope industry folks who want to encourage a new generation of people to discover amateur astronomy. I happen to be president of the group now through the spring of 2013 and, as such, have created an area on that will be devoted to Astronomy Foundation topics and content.

Just today, Assistant Editor Karri Ferron added an important element to this page, an updated, downloadable PDF of the Astronomy Foundation brochure.

If you are involved in an astronomy club or in astronomy outreach in any way, I encourage you to download the brochure, print it in whatever quantities you can, and hand it out at observing events.

Now is the time to get as many young folks interested in our hobby as we can! Pick up the flag and rock, people!
