Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2014: Awards
 
07:19
Highlights from this year's awards ceremony Last night, James Woodend was crowned Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2014 for his incredible shot of an aurora over a glacial lagoon in Iceland. The awards took place in the foyer of the Peter Harrison Planetarium at the Royal Observatory Greenwich and BBC Sky at Night Magazine was there to report on all the action. For the second time, the awards ceremony itself was conducted inside the planetarium, with guests treated to spectacular views of the images as they appeared on the vast expanse of the planetarium’s dome roof. With more entries than ever before, the judges had a hard time picking a winner, but in the end the ethereal green glow of the aurora in James’s stunning composition won him the overall prize. Unfortunately, James wasn’t available to collect his award on the night but Chris Murphy, winner of The Sir Patrick Moore Prize for Best Newcomer, summed up how it felt to receive an award, “It’s all a bit surreal really. “I entered the competition on a whim after I heard about the previous year’s winner Mark Gee who’s from an area quite close to me, and almost a year later hear I am in London, it’s quite surprising” The winning images can be seen from today in a free exhibition, at the Royal Observatory which runs until 22 February 2015.
