Shooting stars, August 3

3 Aug 2013

Enthusiastic amateurs and professional photographers from around the globe have snapped a record 1,200 entries in the 2013 Astronomy Photographer of the Year, run by the Royal Observatory Greenwich. There are sights from across the solar system, galaxy and beyond; from frenzied solar storms on the surface of the Sun, to clusters of hot blue stars surrounded by swirling dust.  The winners will be announced on September 18.
