Astronomy is a science and nature magazine that encourages readers to explore the universe and become enamored by space.
With roots dating back to 1973, Astronomy continues to flourish as the world's best-selling astronomy magazine. Much of its success ties to its team's ability to assemble the best, most-absorbing material relating to the stars, planets, universe and space. The magazine features stunning photography, well-illustrated articles and beautifully designed pages. Content, which addresses both the science and hobby of astronomy, includes a mix of columns about sky viewing, reader-submitted astrophotography, and articles about astronomy and astrophysics.
Each monthly issue of Astronomy is divided into two sections. The first half contains reports about professional science, including topics like cosmology, space exploration, and research conducted by professional-class observatories and individual professional astronomers. The second half of the magazine is dedicated to items of interest to hobbyists, such as sky events, observing techniques, astrophotography and amateur astronomy in general. Astronomy magazine may include special sections, such as booklets or posters related to upcoming sky events, throughout the year. The magazine also publishes an annual Telescope Buyer's Guide.
