Hello stargazers, this swap is all about the night sky. Wonder what the sky looks like from somewhere else on the world? Or just curious of what inspires someone else to look out at the stars? Come join my swap and discover more...

In this INTERNATIONAL swap you are to send ONE Postcard of your local night sky to ONE PARTNER


The postcard can be of any of the following:

** stars

** planets

** other space phenomenon (non-fiction thanks - eg. Aurora/ Eclipse/Comets)

  • Write your swap-bot name and swap title on the postcard

  • Send a postcard of a local sky (as close as you can of a night sky to where you live )

  • Store bought/New Postcards only (No handmade/Cartoon/Ads/Free ones).

extra info..THIS IS A *TOURISTY POSTCARD SWAP (Just for those who prefer not to get touristy postcards...)

  • Can be Naked or cloaked (check partner's profile for their preference)

Introduce yourself and something about your backyard sky- Some topic ideas:

  • Do you live in a city ?- How many stars can you see?(figuratively)
  • which is your favourite constellation/planet?
  • If you travelled to a planet what would you find?
  • what would you name a moon or planet if you were given the privilege

>>I WILL be checking for the following:

  • Well filled out profile

  • Completed AT LEAST 5 swaps ( of which 3x type 2's at least)

  • MIN rating of 4.98 (no unexplained ones or threes)

  • Has been online at least 3 days before swap deadline.

*Please COMMUNICATE with your partner. If they are late flick them a message to see what's up) If they don't respond within a week of your message, contact me.- Flakers will be publicized.

I can angel if there happens to be a flaker, but looks forward to a successful swap.

Any questions you are welcome to leave below or message me directly. I will respond as soon as I can.

Does this deal with a night view of your city? Maybe there's a few starts in the scene, but there could be buildings. You mentioned it's touristy.

chocosamurai 10/10/2013 #

Yes it can be. (It doesn't have to be your city but needs to be in the same country/region). So for example a postcard that has a view of a city from a high location at night that has some sky is plausible when there is a view of what the sky looks like..

I mention it is touristy as I have seen people put Touristy Postcards in their dislike section so just fair warning that that is likely what they will get (it wasn't a requirement specifically).

I live in a night sky reserve area so our starry postcards are 'touristy' by default and imagine alot of astonomy related postcards are also touristy ... arty photographed style postcards are welcome if you can find them (just as long as the focus is the night sky!)

Can it be a comic type of postcard?

We have Northern Lights here in Maine, so my swap partner is going to love the pictures I can send! They are amazing! :) What a great idea for a swap!

@fawnscrafts It cannot be cartoony... I would rather like to see the real sky..

@AmyCeltic Oh my I'll be jealous of whoever gets you then!! Northern lights!! Actually I'm jealous you get to live somewhere that you can see them!! (we have southern lights here but not visible to the naked eye unless its a super clear lucky night as rumor has it...)
