The Galactic Times Newsletter

A twice-monthly newsletter that follows up on the Podcast, that began May 2021, and that:

* Brings the most interesting news stories (This Just In) which connect to the current night sky
* A textual and visual two-week Sky Planning Calendar, using the Moon’s wanderings to find the planets and other objects, notes on the Planets and events, our anti-horoscope musings, and more.
* Other features include quirky findings of Astronomy in Everyday Life, and Star Trek stars (to coincide with a future Hermograph Press book).

Many stories come from the latest news in world astronomy conferences and journals. Unlike in mass media, all the stories are authoritatively written by astronomer, journalist and educator Dr. Larry Krumenaker.
