Amidst the doom and gloom of spending cuts and Ministerial incompetence we’re sometimes liable to forget what it’s all about. Last night provided us with a reminder, in the form of the Astronomy Photographer of the Year competition held at the National Maritime Museum (site of the Royal Observatory at Greenwich). There’s a varied selection of gorgeous entries on today’s Guardian, but this stunning image by Tom Lowe was the overall winner. Congratulations to him!
