Fascinated by the night sky and trying to discover what’s hiding out there beyond the atmosphere? The Royal Observatory Greenwich will take you on a space trip – their newest showcase of astronomy photography opens on the 17th of September.
The Royal Observatory Greenwich hosts the selection of finest photography that emerged during the annual competition at the Observatory’s AstronomyCentre. The selection features the highlights from the photographers whose main focus are the intricacies of the outer space.
There’s a lot to anticipate: from the photos of the galaxies far, far away, to Milky Way and the planets surrounding the earth, the exhibition will take everyone fascinated by the night sky on a space odyssey.
Additionally, the Planetarium will run a show built around the winning photos – taking the visitors on a tour around the Earth, the Solar System and the universe.
The images displayed at the Insight Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2016 exhibition include the winners from nine main categories, but also two special prize winners. The entry to the display organised by the Royal Observatory Greenwich in association with Insight Investment and BBC Sky at Night Magazine is free.
