The National Maritime Museum's Royal Observatory in Greenwich England
has announced the 2011 winners of its Astronomy Photographer of the Year
contest, across categories from “Our Solar System” and “Deep Space” to
“Best Newcomer” and “Young Astronomy Photographer.” For the first time,
this year the Observatory added a special category for photos taken with
a robotic scope.
From among the winners, we've put together a gallery of our favorites,
including auroras, supernova remnant and beautiful views of the Milky
Way. These photos almost make us ready to pack up and move out of the
city so we can reacquaint ourselves with the stars. Almost.
