Each issue provides a seasonal star chart, stunning celestial photos, expert equipment advice, and the latest developments in the world of astronomy. SkyNews is for active stargazers and is the only way to reach the entire amateur astronomy and astro-photography market in Canada. More information can be found at www.skynews.ca
Youth members of the RASC Regina Centre are invited to photograph a lunar skyscape image and submit it for a chance to win a cash prize. The RASC defines youth member as a person under 21 years old, or under 25 years old and attending a post-secondary institution. A “lunar skyscape” is an image that features the Moon in Earth’s sky and that also includes the landscape. Generally, it is a wide field picture that captures the Moon low enough in the sky to also include the landscape. Deadline for submissions is May 30th, 2022.
