The Amateur Astronomer was a four-page bulletin published between 1929 and 1935 by the Amateur Astronomers Association of New York. C. S. Brainin was the first editor; a section called "Meteor Notes" was edited by Virginia Geiger starting in 1933.[1]

In 1935, The Amateur Astronomer merged into The Sky published by the Hayden Planetarium.[2] In 1941, The Sky merged with The Telescope to become Sky & Telescope,[3] which has remained in print since then.
