2005 astronomy in review

Contributed by

Every year, the charmingly weird (some might say eccentric, but I bet she herself would say "weird") astronomer Virginia Trimble and several co-authors assemble the astronomical news from the previous year and publishes it in a journal. The 2005 review is now online.

A lot of it is technical, but it's still amusing. It's like Mystery Science Theater 3000 for real science: you won't get all the jokes, but you'll probably get enough to make it fun (I'll admit a lot of them sailed right over me). The humor is good, and the science can be downright interesting.
