Astronomy Photographer of the year 2014:Royal Observatory Greenwich

James WoodendJames Woodend

I could never for the life of me understand how of all the words at the disposal of the people that invent descriptive expressions, somebody came up with the idea of calling our vast universe (SPACE).Take a look up at the sky on a clear crisp night and your see a billion stars, comets, meteoroids and planets contradicting the space word with their very occupancy. Our universe is vast, very crowded and with the help of the timely exhibition at the Royal Observatory Greenwich, Astronomy photographer of the year competition,it gives us an opportunity once again to see just how beautiful our universe is.
This year marks the seventh year of the competition and as last years winners exhibit their amazing picture in this free admission exhibition, which although small in size in dynamic in contents, entries are now open to any would be budding astro-photographers to pick up the grand prize of £2500 in the 2015 competition. This year the organizers with the help of a new sponsor Insight Investment have added new categories and a lot more prizes and a special award for children age 15 or under called Insight Photographer of the Year -Young competition.
