Where do you get your astronomy news?

Recommended Posts

Pretty much as the title says. What websites do you use for astronomy related news? I've been using S@N and AAS but the problem with magazines is that the news is only updated once a month, and alot can happen in a month! So what is your favorite astro-news site?

Mostly SGL for me!

The only stuff that particularly interests me is news of comets or supernovae.

I keep an eye on a number of aurora forecast sites when the sun is active.

No great interest in current research these days. It's all a bit too esoteric and academic.

I lost interest in exoplanets before they even identified any....

Principally it's Space.com, S&T, and the ISS HQ for times and directions of flybys. I just subscribed to the One Minute Astronomer, but not sure yet if that's breaking news or more feature oriented....

Can I ask what astro news ??

If general stargazing then usually one or two forums and just about anything that offers up bits of information, basically just about anywhere.

Actually I update my earlier statement - Bad Astronomy used to be good for Astro news. It seems to be more about politics now...

I've put a few RSS feeds onto the front page of my website, which get daily updates  - I'm always on the lookout for any new feeds so looking forward to what might turn up in other postings on this thread.

A lot of e-mail clients can be configured to receive RSS feeds.

I have an RSS feed to Phys.org Astronomy News.

You can also just look at the Astronomy News section on their website.

EarthSky News, Space.com & Livescience.com, these three I get daily email updates. I also have the NASA App & of course SGL.

Here, mainly. Also getting into Twitter, which is surprisingly OK once you get past the nonsense!

I guess I tend more towards space exploration and sciency bits so I enjoy the feeds from @NASA and @ESA, though I also follow some of the local astro socs, too.

Thanks for the suggestions! I already looked at Nasa's website and I've just had a look at Earthsky. Both look good, thanks for the links!
