Astronomy Photographer of the Year

About

Experience an Earth’s-eye-view of the universe with spectacular space photography from around the world.

Featuring 100 awe-inspiring images from The Royal Observatory Greenwich’s hugely popular ‘Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2018’ competition, this exhibition celebrates the very best in astrophotography and will be displayed at World Museum to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the moon landing on 20 July 1969.

Photographs on display include a mesmerising mosaic of the Great Orion and the Running Man Nebula; a magical scene of an Aurora Borealis exploding over the south coast of Iceland and a solar transit of the International Space Station between the massive sunspots AR 12674 and AR 12673. 

2018’s competition received more than 4,200 exceptional entries from amateurs and professional photographers from 91 countries. The judging panel included artist Sarah Pickering, comedian and keen amateur astronomer Jon Culshaw and Editor of BBC Sky at Night Magazine Chris Bramley, alongside a host of experts in the worlds of art and astronomy.
