One last fun fact: Night Sky Network members logged almost 4,500 events by over 200 clubs this year, and reached over 464,000 people! 

Note: Pin orders are now closed.

Please note that the process for ordering pins has changed this year. Club coordinators may reserve pins. First, in order to qualify, please make sure your club's qualifying 2013 outreach events are logged by January 6 2014. Qualified clubs automatically receive three pins, so you don't need to notify us at all if that number is sufficient.
Due to budgetary constraints, we were unable to offer unlimited free pins this year. The first three pins are still free; additional pins may be ordered by Club Coordinators for deserving members for $2.00 per pin, including shipping.

Responses were closed on our survey and orders as of January 6, 2014-thank you all who responded!

Pins will reach clubs before the end of January.

You can reach both of us any time at

Wishing you clear skies!
