 “The Cosmos is all that is, or ever was, or ever will be. Our contemplations of the Cosmos stir us—there is a tingling in the spine, a catch in the voice, a faint sensation, as if a distant memory, of falling from a height. We know we are approaching the grandest of mysteries.” —Carl Sagan, Cosmos

What does your view of the cosmos look like? What is the story of our universe, and how do we fit in it? Share your curiosity and wonder of the skies and stars by submitting photos with the hashtag #Cosmos. Editors will select photos to be featured on Your Shot and the National Geographic News site.

In collaboration with NASA, the crew of the International Space Station will select four people to ask questions and receive a personal video response from one of the astronauts aboard the ISS during their Live From Space broadcast on March 14. To have your question considered, post a photo or video on Instagram of you waving hello to the astronauts with a question in the caption, and use the hashtag #HelloFromEarth.

 Watch the Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey television series on the National Geographic and Fox Channels starting March 9.
