Indexed up to 1992 by Dwight Walker
covers the first five volumes 1(1)-5(6), 1988-92
Sky & Space is a great Australian astronomy
magazine covering the Southern Hemisphere, an area hard to find
information on. The magazine covers astronomy, space and
astrophysics and has a broad range of black and white and colour
astrophotography. It is aimed at the amateur astronomer, high
school student and semiprofessional.
Index for the enthusiast and astronomy club
This product is invaluable for accessing detailed information
from the relevant back issues of Southern Astronomy/Sky and
astronomical objects have been covered including galaxies, stars
and quasars plus all the photographs. Now you should be able to
find what you are looking for in the night sky!
The organisation of the Index
- volume by volume - the index is organised by
volume e.g. all volume 1 entries then all volume 2
- cumulated index - all the volumes are merged into
one series of entries e.g. all volumes dealing with
galaxies are together

Australia also was a tough market to make money out of in astronomy.
In August 2015, I discovered this has same editor as Critical Comms, the previous editor of Southern Astronomy Jonathan Nally! This is where Australian astronomy ended.
In November 2018, I discovered this new astronomy ecommmerce and information site run by Jonathan Nally past editor of Sky & Space and current editor of Australian Sky & Telescope.

In July 2019, I watched GSLV MKIII launch on Facebook in watch party of electrical and electronics engineers group I am in.
By 7 Sep 2019, GSLV MKIII will land an unmanned lunar lander on south pole of moon for scientific experiments.
Lander rolled over when landing and has not been righted or observed as it is on dark side of moon and is waiting for another lander from another country to right it or find out what happened to it (9/19).
