Ask a Question

You can ask an astronomy-related question for our team below. We will answer via email within one to four weeks. Please check your spam folder if you don’t hear back from us within four weeks. We can’t guarantee we will answer every single question.


  1. Keep your question short and focused (tell us everything you know about black holes!: not good, why do stars turn into black holes?: good!).
  2. Only ask one question at a time.
  3. We typically do not answer questions about what’s visible in the night sky, or about amateur telescopes. Please contact your local astronomy club or check out our links.
  4. We do not answer homework questions.
  5. The most interesting questions will be published anonymously on our website.
