It annually showcases the best space photography from a global community of astrophotographers.

In this image you can see a part of the Orion constellation. In the upper right we see Messier 78 and in the lower left LDN 1622. Crossing between these two objects, somewhat similar to a blood artery, is part of Barnard’s Loop. The image is a composite of RGB (red, green, blue) and H-alpha shots.
