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.

I can never forget the early morning in mid-October, when my father woke me up at 2am to watch as the Titan IV rocket, carrying the Cassini-Huygens mission, launched from Florida towards its ultimate destination: the sixth planet in our solar system, Saturn.
