There are just under three months left to get you entries in to the competition.

There have already been over 200 entries to this year’s Astronomy Photographer of the Year competition and there’s still almost three months to go before this year’s contest closes on 13 June 2013

From bright, gaseous nebulae to craggy, lunar valleys, the subject matters of this year’s entries have been as diverse as the locations they were taken in – one image has even captured in the Great Wall of China!

Emma McLean from the Royal Observatory Greenwich, is very excited by the progress of the competition so far, ‘This is a great number of entries so early in the competition,” she said, “often our entrants hold on to their submissions until the final few weeks of the entry period, so we’re quietly confident that we’ll see another record breaking number of entries in 2013! We’re very excited to see what comes through this year.”
