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.

Friday at the Observatory

by Stevie

March 15, 2017

The most exciting part about working at an observatory isn't learning my local sky; it's the reaction the kids have when I show them their favorite planet, a nebula they never thought existed, or a double-star they never realized was there. As I helped a six-year-old boy chart what he was seeing this past Friday, it made me realize how important astronomy is for these kids.
