Since EarthSky went online – 25 years ago in 1994 – many of you have said you love our Tonight pages. They are cool! They offer the charts and information you need to learn to navigate the night sky. We’re constantly trying to make this area of the website better. We’ve been working toward a redesign of the Tonight pages, to help bring within your easy reach a ton of great content we’ve spent years developing. Your support will make that happen. Please help!

In early 2019 – thanks to your donations from last year’s crowd-funding campaign – we were able to fulfill a long-held dream. It’s an all-new feature at our website called EarthSky Community Photos. You can submit your photos and see them displayed in our gallery! Click on your name, and you’ll see your photos all displayed on one page.
The response has been amazing, with many new photos of night sky events – and images from your world – posted every day.
We love your photos. Thank you for making this possible.
Please donate to help EarthSky keep going.
For years, the most commonly asked question at EarthSky has been: “Where can I go to view the night sky?” In the past two years – because of your donations – we’ve been able to launch and maintain a Best Places to Stargaze page, whose top level is illustrated here. Go to the page itself to find a great stargazing location near you, or to recommend a public site we can all enjoy.
Thank you for making this page possible!
Ads at the website – plus your Store purchases and your donations throughout the year – help make EarthSky possible. They let us bring you the insights, beauty and heads-up on sky events you love. But this yearly campaign is what keeps EarthSky going. We’re still growing and changing. We’re still offering the best in science news and night sky information. We always welcome your photos and news tips.
Please support EarthSky now. We need you to continue.
Before you go … be sure to visit our Store! Your purchases of lunar calendars, astronomy kits and other goodies also move us closer to our goals.
