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 »

How I came to love Science and Space Travel

by Dave Vander Vlucht

November 18, 2016

When I was a young boy in the 1960s, my mother and I visited with a good friend of hers. Her friend's son was watching Star Trek, so I sat next to him and what I saw I thought was so cool.
