Welcome to AFGU Online!

This community-based site is where all of us as Astronomy from the Ground Up participants can connect and strengthen our astronomy skills. Astronomy from the Ground Up provides informal science educators at parks, nature centers, science centers, and museums with new ways to communicate the excitement of modern astronomy.
