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 »

by Tyler Wooldridge

January 4, 2014 | 0 comments

In high school, I took an astronomy course in my sophomore year. Our class received a donation of galileoscopes from Dr. Heidi Hemmel who was in town.

For me it was the man landing on the moon, on 1969...

I became a sci-fi lifer (must have read 40 or 50 books that year). I saw Sputnik in the sky. I saw the moon landing on TV. I've watched it all - the highlight being 2001:A Space Odyssey. I'm a programmer - I never would have ... more »
