Amateur astronomer Phillip Kane gives some advice on organizing "your" observing experts to assist you at the eyepiece. Like many amateur astronomers who visually observe deep-sky objects, I have a shelf of favorite references whose authors write about their compiled observations. The books I most use are: Burnham, Robert Jr. Burnham’s Celestial Handbook (3...

Read our October issue to learn how massive stars form, whether we'll ever see an Earth-like exoplanet, and when and where to spot the Draconid meteors.
We finally know the ingredients that fire up a particular kind of supernova. Four researchers explain why a better understanding of how certain stars die can help reveal the evolution of the cosmos and its galaxies.
A new exoplanet closely matches what astronomers think Jupiter looked like in its infancy. Astrophysicist Bruce Macintosh of the Kavli Institute for Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology at Stanford discusses why this discovery might help us understand how planets arise.
Follow these simple suggestions to get the most out of your CCD images.
What is a solar flare? Flares are spikes in emission from the Sun, energy unleashed (we’re fairly sure) when magnetic field lines suddenly reconnect. Read more about them and watch fascinating videos in this online extra to our November 2015 cover story.
