Music Inspired by Astronomy: A Resource Guide Organized by Topic
1. Fraknoi, A. , “The Music of the Spheres: Astronomical Sources of Musical Inspiration” in Mercury (the magazine of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific), May/June, 1977, p. 15.
2. Fraknoi, A. “More Music of the Spheres” in Mercury, Nov/December, 1979, p. 128.
5. Ronan, C. “Astronomy and Music” in Sky & Telescope, September, 1975, p. 145.

A short appendix lists a number of astronomers who have recorded songs and self-published them.
