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.

Since the dawn of man, we have asked questions; recently we have started answering them. In the words of John F. Kennedy, "No man can fully grasp how far and how fast we have come." I am in a perpetual state of awe at how our insignificant species went from figuring out how apples fall down to landing on our nearest satellite with a computer as powerful as my TI-84, all a few milliseconds "before midnight." Currently, I am pursuing studies in astrophysics but a career in politics. I would like to further human knowledge and keep our place in ... more »
