Here are some pictures from the Astronomy Photographer of the Year in 2012. This is run by the Royal Observatory Greenwich in association with Sky at Night Magazine.

All I can think when I see these pictures is Psalm 19:

The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
