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 »

My Story

Tell us about why you love space exploration, what got you excited in the first place, when inspires you, or whatever you would like to share with your community of space fans! In our newsletter each month we will ask a different question. Share Your Story »

Crater Exploration with the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada (RASC)

by Charles O'Dale

The scientific study of impact structures began only about 50 years ago. I’m dating myself, but that was about the time my interest in impact craters started.

Well since retirement, I combined my hobbies of astronomy, geology and flying to explore impact craters and structures in North America from the air and ground. You may think that the natural geological forces on our planet would have destroyed any features of impact craters. But, ... more »

As a human, it's just natural.

For me, space is just one sliver of the iceberg. I feel the need to look further. Take each piece and put them together. To see the whole picture.

That's how I see it. My name is John Leach and I am just starting to grasp my inner knowledge seeker. As I say it: "It's just human." As I see the world today, some may see as profit.

by William Moore

December 29, 2014 | 0 comments

Are there other intelligent beings in our universe? It is my contention that, yes, there are, there were and there will be more in the future. We earthlings appeared on the galactic scene 5 billion years after the birth of our sun on a planet with liquid water and the right elements in place to allow life to begin. It is my contention that the first intelligent life appeared in the universe 5 billion years after the Big Bang, 9 billion years ago. That life may long be extinct by now due to their sun dying, catastrophic self-extermination during their ... more »
