From giant storm systems in Jupiter's atmosphere to the colourful wispy remnants of a supernova explosion and the dazzling green curtain of the Northern Lights, the competition brings together some of the last four years' best space imagery of astronomical objects from within our solar system and far into deep space by astrophotographers from around the world.
