Incredible images gathered from many astronomy sites, including the Solar Dynamics Observatory, the Solar & Heliospheric Observatory, the European Southern Observatory, NASA, the Hubble Space Telescope, and more.
Eighty-five years ago, in December, 1934, The ASN was founded by a physics professor at the University of Nevada named Dr. G. Bruce Blair. Professor Blair was very interested in comets, but his true passion was bringing astronomy to the masses.
