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 »

Tell us about why you love space exploration, what got you excited in the first place, when inspires you, or whatever you would like to share with your community of space fans! In our newsletter each month we will ask a different question. Share Your Story »

Landing on a comet: a "once-in-a-lifetime" experience!

Just before the ESA-CNES landing session for the Philae spacecraft on comet 67-P started in Paris, Tuesday afternoon November 12, four members of The Planetary Society and its "UMSF forum" were there at our National Science Museum ("Cite des Sciences") gathering as "Ambassadors" for the Planetary Society.
