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.

He would point up to the stars and show me the constellations. I was mesmerized, in awe. Knowing there was an untouched universe out there, so far beyond our atmosphere, always pulled me in its direction. I haven’t, since, stopped looking up.

This was the base where the Space Shuttles were built along with many other experimental aircraft. The hangar in the image is the Space Shuttles' hangar at Plant-42 as seen from the main road. Seeing this hangar everyday along with experimental aircraft and the occasional Space Shuttle re-entry fascinated me as a a child. I would literally jump for joy when an X-Plane would pass overhead. I dreamed of one day becoming a NASA test pilot or engineer at Plant-42. I ... more »
