Useful Astronomy Blogs

It can be hard to find useful sites related to astronomy. There is SO much astronomy news and information on the web. Over time, I have found some sites that I read everyday so I thought others might find a list of my most-read astronomy blogs helpful.

Mainly, I use Google Reader to condense all favorite astronomy blogs into a more manageable format. If a particular site I like has an news feed (as in RSS) I add that site my Google Reader list. That way it’s much easier to read the huge flood of stories. Common Craft has a cool video explaining how RSS works if you aren’t sure what all this is about and even one all about how to use Google Reader for your RSS feeds. You think I left something out? Let me know in the comments.
