Hi PTK'ers,

Both Astronomy Magazine and Sky & Telescope Magazine have wonderful special
editions currently on the newsstand. Explore the Universe (A) and SkyWatch
'98 (S&T) are both excellent resources for science teachers, students, and
anyone interested in astronomy and space science.  They both have monthly
star charts through December '98 along with articles on such topics as
getting started in astronomy, choosing the right binoculars or telescope,
book and software reviews, Mars missions, Galileo, HST, and lots more.  At
$4.95 each, they're both money well spent.

Happy to contribute,

Tim McCollum
