  • The Moon mystery — A planet-scale smash created Earth’s satellite. But how did it manage to make a moon so like Earth?
  • The astronomer’s astronomer — Australia’s John Bolton is largely forgotten, yet he founded a new type of astronomy and probably should have won a Nobel Prize.
  • Shadow science — As the Moon’s shadow sped over Earth last year, researchers intensely studied every aspect of the dramatic event.
  • Square galaxies — Grab your scope and spend some time hunting a bunch of faint fuzzies in the Great Square of Pegasus.

Plus: What’s in the sky tonight, all the latest Australasian and global news in astronomy and space science, telescope and astrophotography tips and so much more.
