"For the wise man looks into the space and he knows there is no limited dimensions." 


The Insight Investment Astronomy Photographer of the Year competition has reached its 10th edition!

The winner of the year is Brad Goldpaint with his incredible image named Transport the Soul. Royal Observatory Greenwich has received over 4,200 entries from 91 countries across the globe, and each category has a winner. The winning entries for each category can be seen below.
