BAA Observing Sections

Submit observations to the BAA

Since 1890, collecting amateur observations has been central to the BAA's work.

Observations should be sent to the Association's various observing Sections, which you may contact using the links to the right. The Directors of the Sections will give you more information about how to submit your observations.

We welcome not only astrophotos, but also visual observations, drawings, spectra, magnitude estimates, etc. Most Sections will require you to supply additional information such as the time and date of your observation, your location, the equipment used, etc. The Section Directors will be able to advise you about their particular requirements.

If you would like to see your images featured in our online gallery please contact the gallery editor.
