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, along with a few others here in the UK, are trying in a very short space of time to raise capital to show the University of Dundee, Scotland that there is practical, alternative funding and future for the DSRS facility in its' 50th Year of service and its' 40 years of archived satellite data / imagery.

As Opportunity Mission (anticipated as a 90-day mission) has just shut down after 11 years of exploring (2008-2019) and over 26 miles on the surface of Mars, I present several of the interesting Opportunity images. Images courtesy NASA/JPL/Cal Tech/Cornell U and other space agencies. Thousands of images. All camera setups on the Opportunity are stereo pairs so as to capture left/right images. Front Haz Mat Cameras, Rear Haz Mat Cameras, Navigation Cameras, Panoramic Cameras, and the science/micro imaging cameras. Take time to look and have some fun.

Like so many Americans, I've wandered aimlessly through life until recently (28 years), trying to find a way to be content. After seeing the night sky at one of McDonald Observatory's Star Parties, a passion woke inside me when I saw the night sky with my own eyes for the first time with a mind able to comprehend it. There's no longer a search for how to be happy, but a search for more knowledge, and for my place in this community. I look forward to this adventure and cooperating with you all for a better tomorrow.
