Witness brilliant starscapes and superb space imagery at this spectacular exhibition
Great startrails sweep widely over a sparkling constellation of blues, indigos and violets. Spectacular images of racing comets tearing through Earth's atmosphere, creating a sense of the dramatic. There can be no doubt about it - the cosmos is an amazing place to grab a photograph.
