7 dazzling astronomy photographs
Stars aligned for some of Australia’s best astronomy photographers at the weekend, with the announcement of the winners of this year’s David Malin Awards.
Operating annually since 2005, the competition acknowledges the technical skill required to “capture the beauty of the sky and the intrinsic interest of astronomy in an aesthetically pleasing manner”.
The awards were presented on Saturday night during the CWAS (Central West Astronomical Society) AstroFest conference.
The winning entries will be exhibited at the CSIRO Parkes Observatory’s Visitor’s Centre until October before touring elected venues around the country.
