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.

After that moment I would also visit my grandfather in central Florida and watch the shuttle launches of Discovery, Endeavor, ... more »

My space inspiration

by Doug Currie

November 21, 2016

I was born in 1960 in southern Ontario Canada and one of the first things that I read and interested me were children's books about space exploration and astronomy.

One thing I particularly liked then and still long for more of now was to ... more »
