For all those who were under the impression that the Yearbook of Astronomy was no more, I am delighted to confirm that this iconic publication is well and truly up-and-running again. An edition for 2017 has been produced (a self-published but high-quality volume which has received praise from all who have received a copy so far) and which is available at http://www.starlight-nights.co.uk/subscriber-2017-yearbook-astronomy/ The 2018 edition will be published in November of this year and can be pre-ordered on Amazon – search ‘Yearbook of Astronomy 2018’. While maintaining the appeal of earlier editions, the Yearbook of Astronomy has evolved, and will continue to evolve, to meet the ever-changing needs of today’s backyard astronomers. We are confident that the 2018 edition will be well received by anyone who reads it . . .
