Galactic Gazette header


Welcome to our blog, a shared effort between the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics John G. Wolbach Library, and our friends, the Harvard College Observatory Plate Stacks and the NASA Astrophysics Data System.

We began the blog after many conversations regarding how it would be nice to share what we are doing with the outside world. It took us a while, but finally the Galactic Gazette was born.

Though the Galactic Gazette was created by the Library, Plate Stacks and the ADS, we welcome others who want to contribute content and wish for this to be a shared resource. If you would like to become an author for the blog, please get in touch with us at In the meantime, we hope you enjoy our stories.
