Share sky photos with NASA

NASA is inviting people around the world to observe the sky and share photos during Earth Science Week (October 12 – 18), the U.S. space agency said in a statement.
Using the hashtag #SkyScience, participants are encouraged to post their cloud and sky photos and observation experiences to Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Google+ and Flickr.

Throughout the week, NASA will share some of the most interesting photos on the agency’s social media accounts. “#SkyScience is another opportunity to get lots of reports in a short period of time and enable additional statistical analysis,” said Lin Chambers, the leader of Students’ Cloud Observations OnLine (S’COOL) project at NASA’s Langley Research Centre in Hampton, Virginia.
Citizen scientists may participate in this Earth science data collection event by observing, photographing and reporting on clouds over their location as a NASA satellite passes over.
