"I believe the AAVSO represents the best of the Pro-Am collaboration in Astronomy. I personally enjoy observing the sun, and by contributing sunspot counts to the Solar Section I know that my individual observations add to the greater astronomical knowledge. That team spirit makes the AAVSO very special - each data point is important, yet the the whole of the organization's membership and massive archive are far more valuable than merely the sum total of its individuals and bytes."
