Don't miss out on this month's issue of Sky & Telescope, on newsstands now. In addition to the stunning astrophotos, detailed star charts, and essential observing tips you expect to find month after month, the latest issue features some wonderful surprises. Learn about the birth and death of stars — including the latest research into the ultimate fate of our Earth. Prepare for asteroid Vesta's closest and brightest appearance in 18 years. And learn all about the latest large-format CCD camera from Apogee Instruments.
What's more, be sure to check out this month's Beyond the Printed Page, the online "bonus section" that accompanies every issue. For June we've included a host of sample images from our S&T Test Report, several animations from planetary spacecraft, and a few free sample articles if you're exploring our magazine for the first time.
And don't overlook what the heavens have in store for May. Listen to executive editor Kelly Beatty's podcast to find out what the Big Dipper can teach you — and much more.
