November 30 2011 Astronomy Newsletter


Hello everybody!

It's that time of year when people are thinking about Christmas presents, but there are occasions for gifts year round - birthdays, anniversaries, congratulations of some sort, etc. Here are two articles to help if you're looking for astronomy-related gifts.

The first article has some up-to-date ideas on gift-buying for adults and the second is about astronomy books.

Buying Astronomy Presents - for Adults
If you have someone interested in astronomy amongst your friends or family, there is a wide range of gift possiiblities. Here are some suggestions as to what to look for and where you might find it. This is a new article replacing one of three years ago.

Astronomy Books as Gifts
What about some astronomy-related books for presents? I've made a dozen recommendations, mostly for readers 8-14, but there are some for adults too. Maybe one would suit somebody on your list.

This is a wow of a picture. Stephane Vetter took it in Iceland. At first glance it looks like a waterfall, rainbow and perhaps a faint aurora. But on second thought, how can you see an aurora if there's enough sunlight to produce a blue sky and a rainbow? Ah, and are those stars I see in the sky? Well, it turns out not to be a rainbow we see, but a fine spray of drops from the waterfall reflecting the light of a bright Moon in a moonbow. http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/image/1111/moonbow_vetter_900.jpg

That's all for now. Wishing you clear skies.
