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 daughter Lori was actively doing research on stripped bass on several of the lakes that have formed in these gentle depressions, but she had not even heard of the term!

Since that time I have been exploring the possibility that there was some sort of cosmic catastrophic event involved in the bay creation.

One work product has been the creation of a geospatial catalogue of 45,000 Carolina bays using the ... more »
