The ASP is a non-profit membership organization founded in 1889 for the promotion of astronomy to the broad communities of professionals, amateurs, educators, and interested laypersons. The Society publishes a technical journal (PASP), conference proceedings, and the symposia of the International Astronomical Union. Members receive Mercury, a bimonthly general interest magazine. ASP has many educational an public outreach programs including a free quarterly newsletter for teachers, an annual Universe 'XX exposition and fair, and a nationally acclaimed teacher-astronomer partnership program (Project ASTRO). The ASP and the SETI Institute are joint contractors with USRA to develop and manage the education and public outreach program for SOFIA, NASA's airborne infrared observatory.
