Astronomical Telegrams (Telegrammes Astronomiques)
During the triennium Commission 6 continued to interact with the Central Bureau for Astronomical Telegrams (CBAT) under the very effective directorship of Brian Marsden. A widening of the associated astronomical subjects recorded in the IAU Circulars was noted. There is no doubt that these Circulars continue to play an important role for the fast dissemination of astronomical information. The trend towards a preference for electronic distribution by the recipients cannot be overlooked.
