Abstract: In the United States, many K12 schools are exploring the option of astronomy online education. Three reasons that astronomy is being offered through online learning are the shortage of earth science educators, the worldwide spread of COVID-19, and astronomy being considered an elective course, and thus, in some cases, not fitting into the public school schedule. Online learning has the opportunity to remove many of these barriers for students.
