In the June 2024 issue of Sky & Telescope, we demonstrate that, with the latest equipment and imaging techniques, amateur astronomers can now discover more new objects than ever before. Follow along as we show how groups of amateurs are discovering hundreds of previously uncataloged nebulae. Then, we watch a binary star smashup: We discuss what astronomers are learning about stellar mergers after having caught a bunch of binary stars in the act. Speaking of things that come in twos, we’ve picked out some stunning naked-eye star pairs to observe this month. Finally, the Vera C. Rubin Observatory is nearly ready for first light, so we look at how they built this massive observatory and what astronomers expect to learn from it.
