My Sky

We’re looking for images you’ve taken of your sky—whether those images are of galaxies captured through a telescope or perhaps pictures of an incredible night sky, an eclipse, a star party, or a rocket launch. We can’t guarantee that we’ll publish every image and story—but we will look at each and every one and will showcase as many as possible here on our website and a few might make it to our magazine, The Planetary Report. We look forward to seeing your Sky. Share Your Sky »

I am with a team of animators working in Atlanta for a few weeks, my usual home is in Los Angeles. I realized this location offered me an opportunity to travel to the Kennedy Space Center, provided I either booked a flight or rented a car to drive 7 hours. One of my co-workers agreed a road trip sounded fun and tagged along, so we decided to spend a little extra and rent a Camaro for the trip.

I would assist him as he would make meticulous adjustments, and then point his instrument to several interesting targets.

We would then spend several hours peacefully contemplating the universe, much as our ancestors have done for as long as we have been human.

Unlike them, though, we did not have to resort to inventing ... more »
