#                         Updated 20 September 1994
# This is  a  short  description  of  anonymous-ftp  file servers containing
# astronomy and space research related material. I have  included only those
# servers where  there are  special subdirectories for astro stuff  or  much
# material included into  a general directories. This list is not a complete
# data set of possible  places, so I would be very happy to  receive notices
# and information depending on this listing. *** denotes a new site to this 
# listing.
# The latest version of this file is available via anonymous-ftp as:
#             ftp://seds.lpl.arizona.edu/pub/faq/astroftp.txt
# There is also a HTML (World Wide Web) version of this document
# which may be obtained as
