The Sun peeks into the horizon just before daybreak, with the full moon at attention, still glowing a shade of pale yellow
The vividly pink color of a sunrise appears to bounce right off the snow-capped mountains, which comprise the Italian Alps. Another feature looms below, known as Superga Hill.
This image, captured by Stefano de Rosa, was taken in Turin, Italy. It was one of around 20 images selected by the Royal Museums Greenwich in London. The winner of the contest, the astronomy photographer of the year, will be announced next month. (See a larger image here)
