As I write this, the south coast of the UK is blanketed in wall-to-wall cloud – I’m sure I speak for all fellow astronomers, who are looking forward to a night under a selection of Solar System and deep-sky objects, when I say our planet’s coverage is a constant source of annoyance. That is, alongside light pollution.
That’s why I’m extremely pleased to reveal that, this issue, All About
Space presents the best tips and tricks so you can still make the most of astronomy even when it’s cloudy outside. While you need some patience for some of our suggestions, we’ve ensured that there’s something for everyone – you’ll never have to put your hobby on hold ever again! If you’re clouded out this month, then make sure you turn to page 70. On the flipside – for when we’re treated to stunningly clear skies – don’t forget to take a look at our following feature where we show you how to get the most out of observing without breaking the bank. We’ve got something to suit all budgets.
It wouldn’t be an issue of All
About Space if we didn’t look into the most mind-bending theories of the universe – and this issue doesn’t disappoint; does space have a final dimension? Over on page

Enjoy the issue! Gemma Lavender Editor
