Picture of Thomas Storey
Updated: 7 April 2017
The Insight Astronomy Photographer of the Year Competition is an annual global search for the most beautiful and spectacular visions of the cosmos, from striking pictures of vast galaxies millions of light years away, to dramatic images of the night sky taken much closer to home. For this year’s competition, the judging panel is composed of Maggie Aderin-Pocock, Chris Lintott, Dr Marek Kukula and has been joined by impressionist, comedian and amateur astronomer Jon Culshaw. Here’s a selection of the stunning entries to this year’s competition so far.
