Sky Art is a community centered on a gallery of sky photos that support NASA Earth science missions. Amateur photographers from around the world are engaged in making observations, or taking pictures, of the sky just like many NASA science instruments. By submitting their pictures, community members have the opportunity to make the connection between the beauty of nature and atmospheric science. Sky Art is a gateway for interaction and information aimed at drawing excitement and interest in atmospheric phenomena including sunrises, sunsets, moonrises, moonsets, and aerosols.
NASA science is included in the conversation with interaction from scientists, NASA images, and blog posts on science concepts derived from the images. The formal education pathway will teach science concepts that align with national learning standards.
