Cloud cover doesn’t always scupper astronomy. It can complement and frame the sense of awe so long as it keeps in the right place, as captured here.

Talk about a ’decisive moment!’ Vast yet intimate, breathtaking and touching all in one beautiful image.

I love the story of how Floyd the dog was persuaded to be a part of this fantastic image.

Night-time mist, ancient ruins, ethereal light and the quiet expression of the human presence all make this contemplative scene remind me of the romantic landscapes of the German painter Caspar David Friedrich.
Melanie Vandenbrouck, Curator of Art at Royal Museums Greenwich

Tom Kerss, astronomer at the Royal Observatory Greenwich
