Insight Astronomy Photographer of the Year Exhibition

Reading The Times, today, I saw a few of the shortlisted entries for the Insight Astronomy Photographer of the Year Exhibition, on at The Royal Observatory, Greenwich:

Insight Astronomy Photographer of the Year is the biggest international competition of its kind, annually showcasing spectacular images shot by astrophotographers worldwide.

2017’s Insight Investment Astronomy Photographer of the the Year exhibition is in now its final weeks …

Stunning.

These were my favourites but worth a happy weekend trip – that’d be this weekend as I’m a bit late in posting this – to Greenwich to see the rest, I’d say ✨

Royal Observatory, Greenwich, on until 22 July 2018.
