Either way take some time to look up at our sky and reflect on how much we all need it.  How it supports all life and protects us from the harshness of space.   How it isn't just something way up there but something all around us.  It is the air we breathe and the water we drink. And think about how by wrapping completely around our planet our sky connects us all as one global family, living and breathing under one, shared sky. It only stand to reason we should take great care of it for each other

Then use your creativity to photograph the sky. Make it your own! No-one see the sky quite like you do.  And remember to make your photographs all about the sky. The Sky Day Project challenge is to find a spot where your pictures will be about the sky ONLY - nothing else.  Any hint of people, lamp posts, mountains, horizons, trees etc. will get weeded out by our filters and will not get into the artwork :(  

Sky Day Project is live an interactive.  Sky photos are arriving from all over the world everyday and you can filter it by different sky 'states'.

Blue Skies - can offer amazing transitions of light!  Can you catch them?                                                                                

Clouds - amazing possibilities!

Transitions - Day to night.  Night to day.

Storms - Here's an art challenge. How can you convey the idea of a storm without showing its impact on objects (like trees, people, etc.)

Night time - not easy to do but can be spectacular!

All skies are welcome!  Why wouldn't they be?

Our Organization
Artist Ben Whitehouse created Sky Day Project to bring people of all ages together to care about our sky, learn about how it functions and what it's vulnerabilities are and come together across cultures and borders in a new spirit of ecological citizenship.  He is joined in this effort by NASA astronaut and artist Nicole Stott and Northwestern University climate scientist Daniel Horton.  With the input of talented artists, scientists, parents, educators, writers, child development experts and social scientists we are building Sky Day Project as an interactive educational platform to offer teachers, parents and kids imaginative lesson plans, inspiring ideas, great articles, innovative projects, forums for discussion and exciting opportunities for international collaboration.
