Big deal no surprises there then

1. The Sky at night is a joke now NOT what Patrick intended
2. The magazine is no longer Amature orientated just another amongst many
3. The forum was poorly run with minimal "bothering" from the team

I have only ever used this Forum and was not even aware of the 'Sky at Night' one. As for Twitter & Facebook I do not subscribe to these. I do sometimes buy the magazine or read a copy that a friend buys. As for the BBC TV programme, I have only watched it a couple of times since PM died, and it did go a bit off even near the end of his era when he was unwell. Perhaps it should have died with him! Regards maf

Like Mike - I never used the S@N forum and didn't realise it existed until Brian pointed us to its closure . I haven't been watching TV S@N much, but thought it might have been just me getting older. And UK monthly astro magazines are getting quite expensive so I rarely buy them. I did get the May S&N mag because of its Sun article by Prof Lucie Green. However, the 6 page article includes 1.5 pages of the Sun in extreme Ultra Violet, a montage of 365 images each showing the Sun about 10mm diameter. A bit small for my liking ! I suppose I'll need to wait another 12 months to see another article about the Sun. Meanwhile another Black hole might blink at somebody causing another sensation. But it was very interesting for me to read about the Sun's Gleissberg Cycles in Prof Green's May S@N article.
Best wishes from Cliff

Like many, I have not often visited the Sky at Night forum, despite often writing for the magazine. However, now I have revisited, I see there are some threads that are quite useful. I hope the magazine doesn't just vape them as they could be useful for future reference.

I see the S@N Forum address now teleports the user directly to the Facebook page. Not sure if the old Forum is even readable now?

But you can't post on it, it is just a place for them to post which is pointless
