Confession time! For most of my life, I lived in a small town in India under glorious dark skies. But until recently, I never went stargazing. Not because I wasn’t interested, but simply because observing seemed scary. I didn’t know where to begin and what to do.And that’s precisely why I enjoyed editing this video about Skywatch. This annual magazine, edited by associate editor Tony Flanders, is a guide to the stars for everyone — especially beginners like me.
This year’s Skywatch has an interesting theme: astronomy in motion. Nothing in the sky is ever the same, and with this issue you will discover just how dynamic the universe is. Look also for the extensive observing section on what’s in the skies in 2012.
Skywatch is now available on newsstands in the U.S. and Canada. You can also purchase it from our online store.
