Mark Boardman, United Kingdom / Hail shower over Jodrell Bank - This picture was taken from the edge of Macclesfield Forest, Cheshire, looking west towards the radio telescope at Jodrell Bank and beyond.

Binary Haze by Ainsley Bennett | Ainsley Bennett got up early in October to capture his picture, Binary Haze.  "I knew the Moon, Venus, Mars and Jupiter were in close conjunction," he said.

"The resultant image looked like something from a science-fiction movie, with binary stars rising from the horizon of an unknown planet."

The stunning images show lightning bolting out from dark storm clouds but instead of striking the ground and the ocean, the high-voltage bolts remains hanging in mid-air.
