The American Association of Amateur Astronomers has had an active
presence in the amateur astronomy community since 1996. As the AAAA
continues to grow and expand, it is having a wider and wider influence
among amateur astronomers, and continues to refine the use of the internet
as a tool to promote amateur astronomy to the widest possible audience.
Through the medium of its own web page, an online store devoted to
carefully chosen astronomy merchandise, our own quarterly newsletter,
reciprocal links with other astronomy web sites, the creative use of
online resources such as eGroups, Listbot and banner advertising,
affiliate programs such as Amazon.com, and partnerships with well
recognized astronomy organizations such as Sky Publishing, Kalmbach
Publishing, Bushnell Sports Optics and the Astronomical League, the
American Association of Amateur Astronomers has become an important source
of astronomy information on the World Wide Web.
