Star of Bethlehem

There could only be one astronomical question at this time of year, namely "What was the Star of Bethlehem?"
The link below takes you to a past "Question and Answer" session with PM. IN this he expresses his facour for the meteor theory, which explains the movement and the fact that we have only the biblical reference to it.
I have devised an extension of this theory, which changes the meteor into a small asteroid ...

Happy Christmas to all our readers

I'd like to wish all our readers a Merry Christmas and a very happy New Year.

Thanks to you, it's been a hugely successful year for us. When we launched the magazine we had no idea it would go down as well as it has, or that we'd have so many favourable messages from amateur astronomers around the world. It may be our "day job" but great feedback truly makes the whole effort worthwhile for ...

Orbiter 2005

Hello
The new magazine arrived yesterday, with Orbiter on the CD. I wondered how long it would be before Orbiter was included.

Opinions on Sky at Night magazine

Now that it has been running for 6 months or so, I wondered what opinions were on this new publication.........

Considering that the Sky at Night has been running since, I believe, April 1957, this magazine has been a long time a-coming.

But I believe its been well worth the wait.

Although priced at £4.25, the publication still offers very good value for money. And, of course, you get a CD ROM included in the ...
