Astro Society Edition Requirements

Astrospheric offers astronomical societies and their members a special edition which makes much of Astrospheric Professional's data available at no cost.

To qualify for the Astro Society edition, a society must fulfill certain requirements. These requirements serve to demonstrate the society's legitimacy and level of activity, as well as to introduce new users to Astrospheric. By doing so, the program's operating costs are covered.

Societies that are unable to fulfill the requirements are invited to use Subspace for free, allowing easy communication and planning with their members. Furthermore, members can still access the additional data available in the Astro Society edition by purchasing an Astrospheric Professional subscription. ($2.99/month or $29.99/year USD before taxes)

The purpose of this document is to answer FAQs about the requirements.

These are the current requirements as of 2023. It is possible for a previously entitled society to lose their Astro Society edition entitment if they stop meeting any of the requirements. These requirements augment the standard privacy policy and terms of service for our customers.
