Photo by Geoff Sims (Australia)
A solar eclipse that occurred on November 14, 2012 hangs in the sky in Queensland, Australia. The photo was awarded fifth place in the Beauty of the Night Sky category. A judge noted, "While we didn't include solar eclipse images in the previous years, this image that has prominently captured the moon shadow cone changed our position. Totality creates a short bizarre nightscape and the phenomenon strongly connects astronomy and nature."
