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.

Texas Trekkie

by Allen Harris

March 6, 2017

In the 60s, one of my earliest memories were of my mom dressing up for a costume party in a Starfleet uniform looking a lot like Yeoman Rand. I was 4 years old when Star Trek first came out. I grew up on Star Trek and 2001: A Space Odyssey and later even reading books from her shelf with Arthur C. Clarke and other greats from the genre.
