Greetings, fellow astrophiles!

The most recent issue of Free Astronomy Magazine (May-June 2019) is available for your reading and downloading pleasure at www.astropublishing.com (click the link to go directly to the issue).

This month features the first of a two-part series in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 10 and 11 missions that found us first visiting (10) and then landing (11) on the Moon. As if the gorgeous selection of images for the Apollo article was not enough, the issue includes its usual wonderful selection of NASA/ESA/ALMA astronomy and space science articles.

Free Astronomy Magazine (website, facebook) was featured as the first of a series of articles on great free online content for amateur astronomers (see A Universe Of Free Resources Part 1) and we’ll be keeping track of future publications under the Online Resources category on the CNYO website.

Free Astronomy Magazine – September-October 2018 Issue Available For Reading And Download

Greetings, fellow astrophiles!

The most recent issue of Free Astronomy Magazine (September-October 2018) is available for your reading and downloading pleasure at www.astropublishing.com (click the link to go directly to the issue).

The cover story for this issue (written by yours truly) considers the very recent discovery of what might be a subglacial lake deep in the southern polar ice cap region of Mars. Imagine the science we’ll be able to do when not doing it from afar (concerns about near-term terraforming in the same issue notwithstanding).
