Message from Sky & Telescope

The AAS staff (including staff of Sky and Telescope) are working remotely from their homes to support the social distancing efforts to contain COVID 19. While we are all working to support the S&T community, there may be delays in responding during this time. If you have a question or concern, please contact Camillia Taylor at shopatsky@aas.org.

This is a difficult time for the entire United States. Aero, our fulfillment partner, is based in Ohio. As you may know, Ohio has closed all non-essential businesses. Aero also provides fulfillment services for P&G and has received an exception from the shut-down. While they will continue to fulfill our orders, there may be a delay in shipping our products because they must give priority to medical, personal healthcare, and cleaning and sanitization products.

Globes

Our editors have spent years working with space scientists at NASA and the U.S. Geological Survey to create an exclusive and unprecedented series of planetary globes that you can own.

S&T offers 12-inch globes of all four inner planets — Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars. Their exquisite detail lets you explore famous features like Earth’s Tibetan Plateau or the giant Martian canyon system Valles Marineris in their “big picture” context. Our Moon globe, assembled from more than 15,000 images and bristling with 850 feature names, lets you go on journeys of discovery across the familiar nearside and the always-hidden farside from the comfort of your favorite chair.  In addition, the Moon and Mars globes come in versions that show each world as it appears naturally and also with color-coded topography that accentuates mountains, valleys, and craters.

New to the S&T globe family are 6-inch spheres that portray the Earth, Moon, Mars, and Pluto! These smaller, more affordable globes are perfect for classroom use or for that special future astronaut in your life. Created with the same care and detail as our larger offerings, the 6-inch globes look attractive on your desk and make a fine collection for your bookcase.
