About Us

Out There Now shares what is happening right now in the sky – scientific results, reported at The Astronomer’s Telegram (ATel), from professional astronomers and astrophysicists. Listeners are invited to investigate further, at the ATel website, and by joining the discussion online, at Twitter (#OutThereNow).

The language can be a bit technical — it is professional research results, after all — but we focus on the most interesting results coming out right now.  We hope this will ignite curiosity and questions, and inspire you to learn more.

The Astronomer’s Telegram (ATel) is for the reporting and commenting upon new astronomical observations of transient sources, by the professional astrophysics community. At www.astronomerstelegram.org.
