Graphics to link to AmSky Features

Our features are designed to look much like features of your website, not crude commercials for AmSky. We do have links to AmSky's features and ads for businesses that cater to amateur astronomers, but we strive to use good taste in placing these links and ads.

You are welcome to display your links to AmSky in any way you prefer. For example, a simple link like "Astronomy Clubs" for the Astronomy White Pages is fine. However, for your convenience we have provided the graphics below.

The Astronomy Yellow Pages

The Astronomy Yellow Pages has classified links to over 300 astronomy-related business web sites.  To link to The Astronomy Yellow Pages please use http://yellowpages.amsky.com.

The Astronomy White Pages

The Astronomy White Pages has links to over 700 astronomy club web sites, classified by state or country*.  To link to The Astronomy White Pages please use http://whitepages.amsky.com.

If you would like a link to astronomy clubs in your state or province, etc. Just link to:

http://whitepages.amsky.com/listclubs.php?local=<yourstate>.

Substitute your state, province, territory, etc for <yourstate>. For example, if the link ends with "local=arizona" it will list clubs in Arizona only. Likewise, if the link ends with "local=wales, it will list clubs in Wales in the United Kingdom. Be sure to insert the listclubs.php as this will bypass the header and footer for The Astronomy White Pages giving your site a simple list of nearby clubs.

No Website? No Problem.

You can create a mini-website for your club on The Astronomy White Pages. Just follow these instructions:

  • Create a listing for your site (you must include your e-mail and a password).
  • Do not include a URL (if you had one, you wouldn't be creating a site anyway).
  • Click the Submit button when ready
  • Return to The Astronomy White Pages
  • Click the Update Your Listing link at the top of the page
  • Click on your listing
  • Enter your password.
  • Click the Create a Site link next to the empty URL box.
