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.

A sketch of Andromeda

by Evan Hilgemann

November 23, 2016

This picture is a sketch of the Andromeda galaxy that I completed as part of a high school presentation on finding and sketching deep sky objects in a telescope.

I've been an avid amateur astronomer ever since my dad bought me a small telescope when I was young. I remember trying to discern Saturn's rings for the first time and driving to local state parks to escape the city lights. With time we upgraded equipment and became more skilled in the art of observing. We traveled to star parties and spent nights out in sub-zero temperatures just to get that perfect ... more »
