Astronomy Photographer Of The YearThe winning images of Astronomy Photographer of the Year are presented in a free exhibition at the Royal Observatory Greenwich which showcases some incredible images of the sky, from within our solar system and far into deep space. Images on display include winners from all nine categories: Aurorae; Skyscapes; People and Space; Our Sun; Our Moon; Planets, Comets and Asteroids; Stars and Nebulae; and Galaxies. Further special prizes include The Sir Patrick Moore for Best Newcomer prize, which is given to an amateur astrophotographer who has taken up the hobby in the last year and who has not entered the competition before; the Robotic Scope prize, given for photographs taken with a remotely operated robotic telescope; and the Young Astronomy Photographer of the Year, given to young and aspiring photographers.

 

About Royal Observatory Greenwich
