WASHINGTON — OK, Santa. You have a lover of skywatching and space on your list. What’cha gonna to do?
Here’s just the thing to help you out: time-proven presents for that admirer of all things out of this world.
MONTHLY MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION
For someone new to astronomy (or a seasoned stargazer that doesn’t have a subscription), I recommend getting them a subscriptions to either (or both) Astronomy or Sky and Telescope (S&T). When the magazine arrives each month, it will be that special stargazer of you. And both publications provide digital versions as part of the magazine subscription.
These monthly magazines and their respective excellent websites are full of observing advice, astronomical equipment, pictures, book reviews, astronomy related ads, related news and monthly observing guides/star charts. Full disclosure: I am an S&T subscriber; I have also done major feature articles for them and been a S&T staff member. (Courtesy Astronomy)
I hope this has helped you on your out of this world holiday shopping. Drop me a tweet or email if you have any questions.
Happy Holidays and clear skies.
