David Malin Awards: Winning Sky Photos 2019

28 September 2019 – 28 January 2020 Sydney Observatory

See spectacular, award-winning photographs of the night sky from the last 24 months as judged by world-renowned astrophotographer Dr David Malin in this free exhibition.

Among the images on display this year is this expansive view of the Milky Way arching over Lake Bonney, South Australia.

Other images on display show the Moon rising over the Sydney Opera House, the northern lights shimmering in Canada, rich detail of the Orion nebula, Earth from the rarely-visited height of 29km and the Parkes “dish” under the Moon – a tribute to Apollo 11, plus so much more.

Winning Sky Photos is presented by the Central West Astronomical Society for AstroFest, Parkes NSW. They are Supported by Canon Australia and CSIRO’s Astronomy and Space Sciences. The competition aims to encourage photographers to use their vision, imagination and skill to produce inspiring and beautiful images of the sky.
