SkyNews Closure

After nearly 30 years, SkyNews is closing. Thank you for your continued support.

After nearly three decades, SkyNews Inc. shut down operations at the end of February 2023. Unfortunately, rising costs and declining advertising revenue mean that the magazine is no longer financially viable, even though the parent corporation, The Royal Astronomical Society of Canada (RASC) has subsidized its operations for years. The March/April Issue of SkyNews is therefore the final issue that has been published.

While it is sad to say goodbye, we are proud of the content that has been published and of the community that supported the magazine for so many years. We hope that you, the reader, have enjoyed this content. Thank you for your enthusiasm and support.

Wishing you clear skies,

SkyNews Inc.
