SkyNews commemorates milestone with 20th anniversary issue
magazine, a niche market publication for amateur astronomers and astrophotographers, is celebrating its 20th year of publishing in its May/June issue—set to hit newsstands on April 13.

The issue comes in at 72 pages, the magazine’s biggest yet, and will be polybagged on newsstands with “Getting Started in Astronomy,” an eight-page booklet co-published with the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada.

The National Museum of Science in Ottawa (now the Canada Science & Technology Museum) launched SkyNews in 1995. In 1999 it faced government-wide budget cuts, and the museum sold SkyNews to its editor, author Terence Dickinson, publisher Greg Keilty and associate publisher Colleen Moloney. 

SkyNews has a paid circulation of 24,042 and depends heavily on its enthusiastic subscribers to remain profitable.
