    Earth Shine by Peter Ward. During a solar eclipse, the brightness of the solar corona hides the details of the moon. By layering 9 exposures ranging from 2 seconds to 1/2000th of a second and with Extreme High Dynamic Range photography or XHDR the image shows not just the radiant solar corona, but the newest possible of new moons, seen here illuminated by sunlight reflecting off the Earth.

    The annual global competition for the most stunning and spectacular images of the universe, whether they are inspiring pictures of vast galaxies millions of light-years away, or just exciting images of the night sky close to home.

    The 2018 Insight Astronomy Photographer of the Year contest has nine main categories, Skyscapes, Aurorae, People and Space, Our Sun, Our Moon, Planets, Comets and Asteroids, Stars and Nebulae, Galaxies and Young Astronomy Photographer of the Year.

    The winning images will be displayed in an annual exhibition at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, London, starting from October 24, 2018.
