In the March/April 2013 SkyNews
Considering that most of the Moon’s features are the product of a single process, the diversity of landforms you can see in even a modest telescope is remarkable. In my On The Moon column we look at one small sliver of the lunar surface near Mare Nectaris that offers a wide variety of fascinating formations from big craters to narrow little rilles and plenty in between.
For those of you unfamiliar with SkyNews, read on . . .
If you were one of those mourning the demise of Night Sky magazine, SkyNews is the nearest remaining equivalent. And in many respects, it's better rounded. Night Sky did a nice job of covering observing, but it deliberately stayed away from pretty much everything else. SkyNews does the observing stuff, but it also reports on the science and features equipment reviews too. It's a bit like a condensed, lighter version of Sky & Telescope - which isn't a bad thing to be! If you're just getting into amateur astronomy, or know someone who is, SkyNews is your magazine.
Perhaps the best things about SkyNews is its roster of excellent writers. Each issue features well-known authors such as Ken Hewitt-White, Alan Dyer, and David Levy. And holding it all together is one of the best writers/editors in the business, Terence Dickinson. Terry is the author of one of amateur astronomy's few modern classics, the excellent introductory book, NightWatch. (I cannot recommend this book highly enough to you if you're just starting out in the hobby.) Terry, along with Dyer, is also responsible for the equally excellent (though somewhat more advanced) book, The Backyard Astronomer's Guide. With that kind of talent behind the scenes, it's no wonder the quality of SkyNews is so high.
