Who and What is EarthSky?

EarthSky.org offers daily updates on your cosmos and world. Founder and editor-in-chief Deborah Byrd created the StarDate radio series in 1978 and launched the daily Earth & Sky radio series on public radio in 1991.

Tonight!

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!

EarthSky Community Photos

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.

Visit EarthSky Community Photos.

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.

Best Places to Stargaze

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!

2019 and Beyond!

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.

We always welcome your photos and news tips.

Please support EarthSky now. We need you to continue.
