The best astronomic photo of 2021

-
Tommaso Berra

You can take pictures of galaxies millions of light years away from us, capture the moment of an aurora borealis or be enchanted by the colors of nebulae and asteroids. The beauty of space is so mysterious that the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, for 13 years, has held a photo contest to award the best astronomical photograph of the year. The winners of the Astronomy Photographer Of The Year 2021 have just been announced, and the astrophotographs, collected in an exhibition at the National Maritime Museum, reveal all the fascination of unknown space objects. The international competition dedicated to the world’s largest photographable subject selected 100 finalist images. The winner was the photograph of Suchang Dong, who was able to shoot the golden ring of a solar eclipse in Tibet. “I saw dark clouds in the sky, we were anxiously waiting for that moment but we were also lucky. It only took a minute and the clouds would have covered the sun.” Said the photographer.

The Astronomy Photographer Of The Year is divided into sections, based on space subjects. Northern lights; moon; people and space; planets-comets-asteroids; galaxies; stars and nebulae, and of course, couldn’t miss a section dedicated to the moon.
All astronomical photos are also available on the website of the Royal Observatory of Greenwich.
