Astronomy Photographer of the Year

30 08 2012

In case you missed it, the Royal Museums Greenwich has announced its list of finalists for Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2012. has a nice gallery of the finalists, but you can see the entire competition pool on flickr. You might want to settle in for a long session in front of the computer, though, because the group includes almost 9,000 photos. On one hand, awesome. On the other hand, those poor judges.

Of the finalists, I’m a fan of Sunny Airlines by Dunja Zupanic. I haven’t made it through all 8,756 photos in the general pool, but I like Toby Harriman’s photo of the aurora borealis taken at Sparks Lake, Oregon, among others.
