NOAO News and Information
- NOAO Press Releases
- NOAO Newsletter
The NOAO Newsletter is published semi-annually in March and September. Back issues are available starting with June 1992.
- NOAO Currents
Currents is a sparkplug for communication between NOAO and our community. It provides updates—and solicits community input—on NOAO observing opportunities and NOAO programs and policies on a more rapid timescale than is possible with the NOAO Newsletter.
Images and other media
NOAO’s Image Gallery is world renowned for its beautiful images of nebulae, galaxies and more of the wonders of our Universe.
NOAO has been a regular contributor to the 365 Days of Astronomy podcast since its inception for the International Year of Astronomy 2009.
We also have downloadable audio tours (podcasts) of several telescopes on Kitt Peak.
