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. Celebrating ten years of awe-inspiring images, this year's exhibition will be the biggest to date with a new gallery at the National Maritime Museum opening to display the winners alongside some of the best images from the last nine years. Scooping the top prize of £10,000 and claiming pride of place in the exhibition, American photographer Brad Goldpaint was named as the overall winner for 2018 thanks to his image of red rock formations and the Milky Way in Moab, Utah. He also won the People and Space award, which is one of nine categories. Other categories are Aurorae, Skyscapes, Our Sun, Our Moon, Planets, Comets and Asteroids, Stars and Nebulae, and Galaxies. A special Sir Patrick Moore Best Newcomer prize is also awarded to an amateur astrophotographer who has taken up the hobby in the last year and who has not entered the competition before.

 

About Royal Observatory Greenwich
