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. Click here for information on delays in international deliveries.

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.

Sky & Telescope May 2020 Magazine

SKU# STM20005

In May’s issue of Sky & Telescope, we explore the rocky surfaces of Ryugu and Bennu and hop through galaxies well-placed for viewing this month. We also watch new star systems form via beautiful images from the ALMA radio array and the SPHEREX instrument, which have changed our ideas about planet formation. New ideas push out old ones in technology, too: CCD cameras are heading in the direction of floppy disks and dinosaurs as CMOS cameras prepare to take their place. This month, we have a particularly excellent view of Jupiter and its moons. Galileo saw four Jovian moons in 1610; now, Scott S. Sheppard and his team have reported 82 moons in all. How many have you seen?
