After Bundestag elections haven't turned out as I hoped for, I start to believe that many Germans have lost their minds. What a wonderful excuse for engaging oneself with unearthly concerns like the Universe. The Royal Observatory in Greenwich, UK showcases pictures that have been taken for the »Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2013« competition. Mark Gee from Australia won in the category »Earth and Space« with a breathtaking shot of the Milky Way.
The exhibition lasts until 23 February 2014, so if you'll be near Greenwich, take a look! If you live somewhere else in the world, but don't want to miss out on great astronomical images, go to this page, to get a new picture of outer space – everyday!
