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 »

Making the best of it

by Wylie Ott

November 17, 2016

When I was 10 I was in 7th grade in San Diego. Schools were overcrowded - at my school, Junior High was mornings, and High School was in afternoons - so I had all my afternoons free. Both my parents worked, and there were no other kids around where I lived.
