Magic from our photo con­test.

WE’RE PROUD TO PRESENT the win­ners of our Sec­ond An­nual Photo Con­test. Our judges se­lected five win­ners—a Grand Prize win­ner, and a win­ner in each of the four cat­e­gories: Mil­i­tary, Civil­ian, As­tron­omy, and Peo­ple & Planes. A sixth win­ner, the Read­ers’ Choice im­age, was se­lected by read­ers in a two-month vote on our web­site. Once again, the en­tries were ex­tra­or­di­nary. We re­ceived im­ages of E-2CS head­ing home af­ter a year-long de­ploy­ment and World War II air­craft and vet­er­ans be­ing hon­ored at air­shows around the coun­try. We saw vol­un­teers restor­ing air­planes and emo­tional farewells to re­tir­ing air­craft. There were pho­tos of dis­tant neb­u­lae and nearby North­ern Lights, so­lar eclipses and the dark side of the moon. You can see the 40 fi­nal­ists on

Thanks to ev­ery­one who en­tered a pho­to­graph or voted in our Read­ers’ Choice cat­e­gory. In our next is­sue, we’ll in­clude in­for­ma­tion about the 2015 photo con­test, so head for an air­show, look up at the night sky, or travel to an aviation mu­seum to cap­ture a mo­ment of his­tory, and send us your best shots. ~ THE ED­I­TORS
