The photograph was named “The Golden Ring” and looks simply mesmerizing: a circle of light against the background of a dark, gloomy sky.

The competition is divided into eight categories: “polar lights”, “galaxies”, “our moon”, “our sun”, “people and space”, “planets, comets and asteroids”, “celestial landscapes” and “stars and nebulae”.
