Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2015

2015 was the seventh year of Astronomy Photographer of the Year, a competition that showcases the best astrophotography images from around the world. Entries from 59 different countries around the world have made the competition bigger than ever, with the images covering everything from spellbinding aurorae to beautifully intricate galaxies millions of light-years distant.

Images like these are an invaluable tool with which to inspire a love of astronomy in others. Each year the Royal Observatory Greenwich creates a short planetarium presentation to show off some of the winners and runners up from the competition (as well as some of our personal favourites) and each year we try and distribute that show as widely as we can so that these amazing pictures can be seen by as many people as possible.

UPDATE: The 2016 Astronomy Photographer of the Year fulldome show is now available here.
