The best astronomy photos of the year will leave you star-struck

Transport the Soul

American photographer Brad Goldpaint beat out thousands of other amateur and professional photographers to win the Royal Observatory Greenwich’s title of Insight Investment Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2018, and the $12,830 (£10,000, AU$18,000) top prize.

Goldpaint took this image, called Transport the Soul, in Moab, Utah. It contrasts that area’s immense red rock formations with the Milky Way on the right, and the Andromeda galaxy on the left. It also won the People and Space category.

“Our planet is of extraordinary beauty and so is the entire universe,” Oana Sandu, community coordinator for the European Southern Observatory, wrote about the image. “Here we are, standing small, at the edge of a cliff, observing it all.”
