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 »

I'm a new student in Massachusetts studying astrophysics. My love of physics and space come mostly from Neil deGrasse Tyson's Startalk podcast, Sagan's Cosmos and Hawking's Brief History of Time.
