Comet ISON is set to make a stunning fly-by this fall — and we want to see your pictures!
The National Science Foundation’s Division of Astronomical Sciences, Discover magazine, and Astronomy magazine are excited to announce the Comet ISON Photo Contest.
The contest is open to amateur and professional photographers worldwide. You can submit images online at www.nsf.gov/comet beginning October 15, 2013, through January 15, 2014.
Judges will consider images in three categories; in addition, website visitors will vote a "People's Choice" winner. All winners receive cash prizes, and winning images will appear in print in Astronomy and online at Astronomy.com, DiscoverMagazine.com, and on the NSF website.
Your picture of Comet ISON may turn out to be a once-in-a-lifetime image — so get snapping!
