The Argelander Society gains two new members

Friedrich Wilhelm August Argelander is generally considered the father of variable star astronomy. He was the first astronomer to begin a careful study of variable stars. At the time, only a handful of variables were known, and he was responsible for introducing the modern system of naming them using the capital letters R-Z.

Season's Greetings From Your AAVSO

Season's Greetings from your AAVSO!

It's hard to believe we've come to the end of another year, but once the tree lighting ceremony in Boston occurs, we know there are not many days until the new year. It's a time of year we use to reflect on what we have accomplished, and it's a time we dare to look to the future and dream about what is possible.

Silicon and Glass

Everyone’s familiar with the term ‘bricks and mortar’. Many donors prefer to give to specific projects or programs that result in well-defined, tangible goods, such as the new wing of a building, a playground, or furniture and athletic equipment for a recreation center.
