8th Annual AOSS Photo Contest

Capturing the spectrum of the natural world, the AOSS photo contest each year encourages photographers to find nature at its most intense moments as well as its most subtle. These images from around the world reveal the complexity that underlies the weather of our world and the beauty of the systems governing it. The contest is administered by the Space Science and Engineering Center.
