The forum for astronomy in New York Astronomers are exploiting NYSkies as a quick, handy, friendly, and potent source of astronomy news relating to the City. And there is LOTS of astronomy stuff going on around New York! Since it revived on 28 September 2001 (it was interrupted by the attacks on the World Trade Center) NYSkies became the definitive forum and public record for matters bearing on astronomy in and around New York.  

On 2020 November 10 NYSkies moved to groups.io from iirs original host Yahoogroups.com. Yahoois terminating its email group service in December 2020.

Joining NYSkies is easy. Sendan empty blank email to nyskies+subscribe@roups.io . it's free! You start receiving NYSkies letters one by one. There is no regularity to these emails; they come to you as they are posted into NYSkies. You reply directly to a NYSkies letter, or initiate a new one by sending email to 'nyskies@groups.io

In NYSkies you discuss reviews of exhibits, films, lectures, books; bulletins about sales and discounts; observations of sky events; plans for informal starviewings; reminders for upcoming meetings; and, inevitably, peripheral news about New York. Altho NYSkies is centered on the City, where most of its subscribers live and work and play, it is open to any one regardless of geography.

In the message area all material is plain ASCII text. Attachments, images, uploaded files are not handled.

NYSkies is a free-flowing dialog. There is no 'censoring' or 'editing' or 'approval' of your letters. You say what you want in your own words, which are automaticly passed along unmolested to the readers. For this reason, there may be instances of personally offensive material. But you know that it is the accurate and true writing of the author. Of course, you may delete such matter and not reply to it.
