The Yearbook also explores cosmology ‘tension’ (where our current theories about physics are being highly contested with differing results about the Universe!), puts the spotlight on Stardome’s recently upgraded Edith Winstone Blackwell Zeiss telescope and tells the story of the recent discovery of hidden asteroid scars buried deep under sheets of ice in Greenland – and that’s only naming a few of the topics covered.

The edition also features the Memorable Moments section, showcasing some of the incredible images of the cosmos taken by international organisations and spacecraft over the past year and as usual, there is the popular monthly star charts, a guide on how to use them and an astronomy gallery showcasing the New Zealand astrophotographer’s talent of capturing the beauty of our southern skies.

Published by Stardome Observatory.
