Over at the Guardian there is an interesting article that reveals the winner for the 2018 Astronomy Photographer of the Year Awards. US photographer Brad Goldpaint has beaten thousands of amateur and professional photographers from around the globe to win the Royal Observatory Greenwich’s title of Insight Investment Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2018. The exhibition is open at the National Maritime Museum until 5 May 2019.
Inspired by the category winners, we have put together an inspiration post of our own. Here is a little round up of some of our favourite astronomy photos from some of our fantastic competition entrants.
