Astronomy Podcast: Learn about current topics in astronomy

Zooniverse: Participate in research in astronomy, climate science, biology, even classical greek studies!

Bad Astronomy: Misconceptions in Films: Of course there is artistic license. But, looking at moments where movies get astronomy or science facts wrong is a chance to learn more about astronomy. Here an astromer/writer has analyzed some of these moments. This website is a little old so it doesn't have too many recent films.

NASA Videos: Here are some great videos produced by NASA. On this page (under Galleries) you can also find links to high-def movies and images.
