AstroBeat and ASP Insider

Exclusive ASP Publications



(formerly Astronomy Beat)

Starting May 2017 AstroBeat, our Member-only digital publication written by “insiders” from the worlds of astronomy research and outreach will be distributed every other month.

Even if you are not a member, you can take a sneak-peak at our current issue of AstroBeat. Then if you like what you see, please consider joining the ASP to have AstroBeat delivered automatically to your inbox on a bi-monthly basis.

ASP Insider

Beginning with the February 2018 issue, the name of the ASP eNewsletter has changed from AstroBeat: Inside the ASP to ASP Insider to eliminate any confusion with our Member-only benefit AstroBeat.

ASP Insider is sent to our members and friends six times per year so we can share information about our work, upcoming event opportunities, such as our Annual Meeting, and inside information about collaborations and partnerships.

ASP members can access AstroBeat and ASP Insider through the ASP’s online MyASP Portal.

Non-ASP members – sign up for our free bi-monthly eNewsletter ASP Insider
