    A new gallery at the National Maritime Museum in London has been launched this year. It now serves as the platform for the winners of Insight Investment Astronomy Photographer of the Year as the gallery currently showcases the best images to be shortlisted by the panel of judges.

    The exhibition welcomes visitors and will last until 4 August 2019. However, Sputnik has compiled a gallery showing some of the most outstanding works presented at the show for those who can't visit the spectacular display in the British capital.
