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.

I looked up all the hard words in either the dictionary or the Encyclopedia Britannica (or both, several times) until I understood them all and I read it over and over and over! It changed my life.

It expanded my world literally billions of times both in space and time. I immediately wanted to become an astronomer ... more »

I have learned different ways of viewing life and the way people see the world as a whole because of my parents’ backgrounds.

One thing I have always loved about space is that by looking up, I was never judged. I was always a fan of science, as in my culture we view the Earth and the ... more »
