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 »

It's time we began our journey to the stars

I am a 70 year old retired man living in the state of Florida. Growing up in Pennsylvania, I can still remember dreaming about being an astronaut in my teen years in the late 50's and early 60's.
