Robotic Scope Winner: Comet Siding Spring alongside Mars by Sebastian Voltmer


What the judges say:

A great astronomical event captured for everyone to see. The close encounter between Mars and Comet Siding Spring was a reminder that comets can sometimes collide with planets — another good reason why humanity should keep its eyes on the sky! Marek Kukula
