Many folks on the forum as posters or just readers are members of the Observatory. Some, I am sure, are not members - yet. The organization provides a long list of services to us as web site visitors, the web cameras, the forums, videos, reports, educational programs for schools, research, and weather data recording. They are sometimes even active in rescue events. I am sure there are activities I have missed. It is quite an organization.
I would like to extend a challenge to everyone. In 2008 move up one level. If you are not a member - become one. If you are a member, move up at least to the next higher level of membership. The organization could use the support. And we all will feel good too in that we are supporting a very worthwhile non-profit organization.
I know we can do it.
