The shortlisted photos for this year's Insight Astronomy Photographer of the Year awards have been revealed, and they're an impressive bunch.
Shortlisted images include the 'Super Moon' behind the Dolomites in Italy, the Northern Lights above the harbour in Trømso, Norway, and a shooting star in the sky over Portland, Dorset — with Venus in shot as an added bonus.
You won't have to go far to view these images though — they're going on display at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich from 16 September, two days after the winners are announced.
This is the ninth year of the competition, and we've always been impressed by standard of photography in the exhibition in the past.
This year there were 3,800 entries from amateur and professional photographers from 91 different countries across the globe, including the first time images of Uranus and asteroids have been submitted.
