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 »

Movies have long portrayed lovers, lying on the beach at night, eyeballing and counting the stars. ‘My love for you will remain till these stars shine’ and countless other phrases invoke stars for the most pure human emotion: love.
