These images are out of this world!



The UK Royal Observatory has announced the shortlisted images in the Astronomy Photographer of the Year competition. Now in its eleventh year, the 2019 competition has had over 4,600 entries from astrophotographers from 90 countries around the world – setting a new record for the contest.

Shortlisted images from this year's entrants include an Aurora shaped like a bird spreading its wings and flying over a military hydroelectric station in Murmansk, and a bright display of nighttime clouds seen from Thurso Beach in the north of Scotland and the remnants of a 1860s pier illuminated by the majestic purple hues of our galaxy.

Photographers have also captured the solar system, the galaxy and the wider universe from a planetary Helix Nebula located 650 light years away, to the second largest planet in our solar system, Saturn, which is wreathed by a complex system of icy rings and by more than 60 moons
