When a special skywatching event occurs or a particularly news-making article appears in Sky & Telescope, we post a press release here. Most releases are also sent out via e-mail by the American Astronomical Society's press officer, Richard Tresch Fienberg; freelance science journalists and accredited members of the media may contact Rick to sign up for this service.
Have other astronomy needs? We can help! Background information, interviews, graphics, animations, scripts — we provide the expertise you need to correctly convey what's happening in the night sky. In return please credit us and, if appropriate, include a link to SkyandTelescope.com.
