Be a part of the bigger picture
SkyDayProject began just before Sky Day 2017 and while most people take part on and around Sky Day each year (September 21) the project is on-going. Day skies and night skies are being posted all the time and participation for Sky Day 2018 was the most amazing yet! We had a three day event at Chicago’s Adler Planetarium and installations at art museums and science organizations elsewhere - we even installed SkyDayProject on the International Space Station! You can view SkyDayProject on any device at skydayproject.org and learn how to take part here. It’s exciting to see so many beautiful sky photos coming in from responsible people all around the world who want to use their creativity to show they care about our sky and want us to come together to protect it for the benefit of all. So join in! It's free and a great way to make YOUR voice heard while helping SkyDay build an amazing library of sky photos for a free, interactive educational platform about the science of all things sky.

Artist Ben Whitehouse created SkyDay to bring people of all ages together to learn about our sky, how it functions and what it's vulnerabilities are and bring people together in a new spirit of ecological citizenship. He is joined in this effort by NASA astronaut and artist Nicole Stott, Northwestern University Climate Scientist Daniel Horton, University of Illinois Professor of Atmospheric Science and Coordinating Lead Author for the IPCC (a panel that was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007!) Don Wuebbles and poet, performer and scientist Sam Illingworth. With the input of talented artists, scientists, parents, educators, writers, child development experts and social scientists we are building SkyDay 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.
