InfoAstronomy has changed a great deal in the past 20 yearís, not just in the knowledge gained but how it is practised.

The internet has also grown steadily over the past ten years, where we have seen the world of cyberspace open up a whole new world of possibilities for people.

As well as allowing the formation of massive communities of people with similar interestís, the internet has made it possible for people to learn, teach, and enjoy astronomy all from the comfort of their own desktop.

Astronomy is very much a practical subject, with dedicated amateur astronomers spending many long dark nights in the freezing cold observing the objects they have waited so long for.

Alastair Leith, founder of the Online Astronomy Society has been interested in astronomy since a very young lad. Sadly being hampered by light pollution in his native London and hampered by lack of space and facilities to setup and practise his hobby, many people would have given up. However realising not only he but other people might be suffering with the similar issues, started this organisation. The crux of things being another new form of observational astronomy, robotic telescopeís, coupled with star parties, and online meetings. Helps unite the community.
