[Providence] Tribune,Astronomy Articles for
   Series of 20 astronomy articles (August 1, 1906–June 1, 1908).
   The articles appeared variously in the Morning Tribune[MT], Evening Tribune[ET], and Sunday Tribune[ST], as follows: “In the August Sky” (MT, August 1, 1906; ET, August 1, 1906); “The September Heavens” (MT, September 1, 1906; ET, September 1, 1906); “Astronomy in October” (MT, October 1, 1906; ET, October 1, 1906); “The Skies of November” (MT, November 1, 1906; ET, November 1, 1906); “The Heavens for December” (MT, December 1, 1906; ET, December 1, 1906); “The Heavens in January” (MT, January 1, 1907; ET, January 1, 1907); “The Heavens in February” (MT, February 1, 1907); “The Heavens in March” (MT, March 2, 1907; ET, March 2, 1907); “April Skies” (ET, April 1, 1907); “The Heavens in May” (MT, May 1, 1907; ET, May 1, 1907); “The Heavens in June” (MT, 1 June 1907); “Astronomy in August” (MT, August 1, 1907; ET, August 1, 1907); “The Heavens for September” (ST, September 1, 1907); “The Skies of October” (MT, October 1, 1907; ET, October 1, 1907); “The Heavens in November” (MT, November 1, 1907; ET, November 1, 1907); “Heavens for December” (ST, December 1, 1907); “The Heavens in January” (ET, January 1, 1908; MT, January 2, 1908); “February Skies” (ET, February 1, 1908); “The Heavens in the Month of March” (MT, March 2, 1908; ET, March 3, 1908); “Solar Eclipse Feature of June Heavens” (MT, June 1, 1908; ET, June 1, 1908).
   The articles are somewhat mechanical accounts of celestial phenomena for the coming month, made interesting by the fact that all except those for August and September 1906, June 1907, and June 1908 feature hand-drawn star charts by HPL, the first (and virtually the last) time that any artwork of his was published in his lifetime. (In the article for March 1908, only the illustration appeared in ET, under the title “The Evening Sky in March.”) The articles end abruptly because a nervous breakdown caused HPL to withdraw from high school.
