Message from Sky & Telescope

The AAS staff (including staff of Sky & 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 [email protected].

This is a difficult time for the entire United States. Aero, our fulfillment partner, is based in Ohio. Aero provides fulfillment services for P&G. 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.

Sky & Telescope March 2021 Magazine

Format: Magazine

SKU# STM21003

In the March 2021 issue of Sky & Telescope, we reveal the many ways “pretty pictures” can serve science. From beautiful astrophotos to beginners learning to navigate the night sky to citizen scientists at their computers, a variety of astronomical explorations make for useful scientific endeavors. For instance, the American Association of Variable Star Observers were the first on the scene when Betelgeuse dimmed so drastically last winter. Now, professionals are using their data to determine what happened to the bright red star in Orion. We’re also hunting down the rare R Coronae Borealis stars that periodically fade in nosedives even more drastic than Betelgeuse’s “Great Dimming.” Plus, scientists are rethinking the history of the asteroid belt. These space rocks may not be a collection of failed planets but displaced material from across the solar system.
