Have you taken an interesting astronomical photo this year? From planets and moons to the Sun, stars and galaxies, we’d like you to send us your image to feature as our Space Science Image of the Week on 31 December!
 
The winning image will take the slot of our weekly image during the week beginning 31 December 2012 as a celebration of the astronomical events of the year gone by. The best of the rest will feature in our dedicated ESA Space Science images Flickr gallery.

During 2012, the sky saw a series of astronomical theatrics. Perhaps you were lucky enough to observe a solar eclipse, or even the transit of Venus? Or maybe you snapped a meteor streaking through the sky? Images of galaxies and nebulae are also welcomed.

Submit your best shot to scicom@esa.int by Monday 10 December. Images will be judged mainly on their aesthetic value.

Please include your name, contact email address, your geographical location, the date you took the image, the camera/telescope you used, and any imaging/processing details that you would like to share. The image must have been taken in 2012 and only one entry per person please.

Good luck!
