A French photographer won an astronomy photo contest. The contest is run by the UK's Royal Observatory. Nicolas Lefaudeux won for his photo of our closest galaxy - Andromeda. This is two million light years from Earth. In the photo, we can clearly see the bright galaxy. It is a bright light in the darkness of space.

Mr Lefaudeux is a famous photographer. His photo beat thousands of other photos. He was very surprised to win the prize. He said: "I was really not expecting to be the overall winner. I had some hopes for being placed in the galaxy category." He was so happy he was "over the Moon" when he got the news.
