Yay, astronomy photos!!!  Photographs of the stars, galaxies, nebula and planets are some of the most gorgeous natural landscapes and the Royal Greenwich Observatory is putting on their sixth annual Astronomy of the Year Competition. With thousands of entries, 250 of them were shortlisted. One will be selected as the overall winner and receive £1500. There are also subcategories like deep space, earth and space, our solar system and young astronomy photographer of the year, to name a few; prizes for the subcategories run from £125 to £500.
