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.

I fell in love with the universe; with space!

It expanded my world literally billions of times both in space and time. I immediately wanted to become an astronomer ... more »

The Earth's protectors

by Michella Warren

I am half native American Indian from the Navajo tribe (Apache de Navajo), and half Bahraini Arabic.

I have learned different ways of viewing life and the way people see the world as a whole because of my parents’ backgrounds.

One thing I have always loved about space is that by looking up, I was never judged. I was always a fan of science, as in my culture we view the Earth and the ... more »
