Tycho Crater Region with Colours

by Alain Paillou

HDR Partial Lunar Eclipse With Clouds

by Ethan Roberts

Runner up in the Our Moon Category

"Light cloud coverings are often used to add texture and mood to lunar images. This picture perfects this technique with precision timing and naturally beautiful, understated processing resulting in an image that makes this partial lunar eclipse shimmer and glow."

- Steve Marsh, Art Editor at the BBC Sky at Night Magazine


Moon Base

by Daniel Koszela

Highly commended in the Our Moon category

"This aptly named image could almost be a model set from a 1950s/1960s science fiction television programme! The surreal atmosphere of this image is greatly enhanced by the high thin cloud and the monochrome palette with the Full Moon adding drama to the scene, either indicating serenity or impending doom (depending on the plot). This image has really set my imagination running wild. If this location has not been used in a film set or as a book cover, it ought to be!"

- Mandy Bailey, Astronomy Secretary for the Royal Astronomical Society, Open University lecturer and freelance science editor
