Each year, the UK’s Royal Observatory in Greenwich hosts one of the best astrophotography competitions around, accepting submissions from scientists and amateur photographers from across the globe.
Yesterday, they posted the jaw-dropping images that won out of last year’s 15,000 entries.

Artist on tumblr - @Caitlin Hackett is an illustrator and creature concept designer based out of Oakland CA.
I create work that reflects both my passion for the natural world, and my sorrow over its destruction. I am fascinated by the fragile boundary that separates humans from animals, and the way that boundary is transformed and illuminated in mythology, religious symbolism and fairy tales alike throughout different cultures around the world. I have art available for sale at www.caitlinhackett.storenvy.com
