My Online Astronomy Journal is a community based web site for amateur astronomers to journal their starry observations. These astronomy journals of our observation sessions are public so we can all read about what each other is doing and learn from each other's experiences.

Free Membership
If you are interested in becoming a member of the Online Astronomy Journal community, the signup process is free and simple.

We are looking to grow our database of amateur astronomy observation information!

Observation Session Journals
My Online Astronomy Journal members share their observation experiences. Get information on what to expect from various equipment and various seeing conditions for looking at certain objects. As a member, you can track your growth and experience as well as just making an astronomical diary of your starry observations.

Astronomy Clubs
If you have a local astronomy club (or more than one) please add it by following the navigation link to "Astronomy Clubs". There, you can let others know about astronomy clubs in your area. You do not need to be a member of My Online Astronomy Journal to submit a Local Astronomy Club.

Observation Sites
If you have a favorite dark sky location or observatory you like to go to observe, unless it's a big secret, share that location with others in your area. With everyone contributing, we will eventually build a database of worldwide dark sky locations. You do not need to be a member of My Online Astronomy Journal to submit a Dark Sky Observation Site

User Contributed Astronomy Tips
As a member of My Online Astronomy Journal, you can share your secrets with other amateur astronomers. Categories include: Scope Tips, Mount Tips, Photography Tips, Accessory Tips, Observation Tips, Logging/Journaling Tips, and more! To read contributed tips you do not need to be a member.

If you have a resource, or magazine you'd like to add to the list, please email the administrator.
