Astronomy Magazine celebrates its 45th year of publication in 2018.

Get ready for an exciting year upcoming with Astronomy Magazine. On May 27, 1973, Stephen Walther, a Wisconsin astronomy enthusiast, founded the magazine. The first issue, August 1973, was published soon thereafter. Now, 45 years later, Astronomy Magazine is the largest circulation publication on astronomy in the world, a title it has held since 1981. Our 100,000 monthly print circulation, 700,000 monthly website unique visitors, and 1.4 million social media followers make us the largest community of astronomy enthusiasts on the planet. 

To celebrate the brand’s 45th year, we have some special events planned. Stay tuned to hear about them as the early weeks of 2018 unfold. I can tell you that we’ll publish a very special issue of the magazine to commemorate the anniversary in August 2018. 

Get ready to join in on the party! 

Thanks for being a part of the Astronomy Magazine family.
