Abstract

1992 was an astrophysically exciting year for most of us. E-mail lines buzzed with news of the anisotropy, the Gallex solar-neutrino flux, a pulsar with two planets, and the remarkable isotropy of the gamma-ray burst sources seen by CGRO. Meanwhile, more routine work continued on problems like star formation that have been around for decades and seem unlikely to be fully resolved in this millenium. The overview of the year presented here attempts to strike some balance between the new discoveries and the less spectacular, but equally important, progress that comes from many people tackling a subject in different ways. Seven self-contained sections discuss the Sun, extra-solar-system planets, the search for brown dwarfs, triggered star formation, gamma-ray sources, the unified model of active galaxies, and large-scale lumpiness in the universe. Five sections of shorter items concern (1) the solar system and Milky Way, (2) discoveries of things long sought, (3) the converse, and (4) and (5) various kinds of corrections and updates.
