Looking to Renew Your AAVSO Membership?


Thank you for looking to renew your membership in the American Association of Variable Star Observers! Perhaps more than other organizations our members mean a lot to us because they are the ones who give the organization its reason for being. Rather than being an organization that serves its members, the membership of the AAVSO is an active part of the organization by its definition with their support and observations. We're glad you're here!
