Associate Editor Robert Burnham // David J. Eicher
Thirty years ago, Astronomy magazine was published by a small company called AstroMedia Corp., and we were headquartered down on St. Paul Avenue in the heart of Milwaukee. The year was 1985, Halley’s Comet was returning to our skies, and we were months away from Kalmbach Publishing Co. buying out AstroMedia. I was an assistant editor, having been on the magazine’s staff for three years. We shared the offices with the staff of Odyssey magazine, the space and astronomy title for kids.

As part of digitizing some old images, I stumbled across these pictures of Astronomy magazine folks back in the day. I hope you enjoy them!
