Globe at Night The Globe at Night program is an international citizen-science campaign to raise public awareness of the impact of light pollution by inviting citizen-scientists to measure their night sky brightness and submit their observations to a website from a computer or smart phone.

Finding planets around other stars is hard. But there’s an important trick we can use to study extrasolar planets that also teaches us about where the planets come from. Planets form from vast clouds of gas, dust, and chunks of rock---clouds that take the shape of disks with stars in the center. We can find out where planets are forming and where planets probably remain today by searching for stars that are surrounded by these disks. Finding these disks, called “debris disks” or “YSO disks” depending on their age and gas content, has been a major quest of astronomers for the last three decades. NASA’s WISE mission probably made images of thousands of debris disks and YSO disks. Disk Detective

Andromeda Project About PHAT The Andromeda galaxy is the closest spiral galaxy to our own Milky Way. For a hundred years, Andromeda (also known by its Messier Catalog identifier, M31) has played an important role in shaping our view of the Universe. In the early 1920's, Edwin Hubble's observations of Andromeda confirmed for the first time that galaxies lie outside of the Milky Way, and that Andromeda must contain billions of stars. Today, Andromeda is a template for understanding how spiral galaxies form and evolve. The Panchromatic Hubble Andromeda Treasury (PHAT) survey (public webpage here) opens a new window on Andromeda.

Finding Bubbles in the Milky Way A huge team of volunteers from the general public has poured over observations from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope and discovered more than 5,000 "bubbles" in the disk of our Milky Way galaxy. Young, hot stars blow these shells out into surrounding gas and dust, highlighting areas of brand new star formation. Upwards of 35,000 "citizen scientists" sifted through the Spitzer infrared data as part of the online Milky Way Project to find these telltale bubbles. The users have turned up 10 times as many bubbles as previous surveys so far.
Over two decades in orbit, the Hubble Space Telescope has made a huge number of observations. Every week, we publish new images on the ESA/Hubble website. But hidden in Hubble’s huge data archives are still some truly breathtaking images that have never been seen in public. We call them Hubble’s Hidden Treasures — and we’re looking for your help to bring them to light. Join the 2012 Hubble's Hidden Treasures Competition
L’Univers est composé de milliards de galaxies chacune abritant des milliards d’étoiles et de planètes. L’exploration du cosmos est l’exemple même d’une tâche fastidieuse. Sur le site de science participative Zooniverse, des chercheurs associent des amateurs au traitement et à l’analyse de leurs données. Ils proposent aux internautes de classifier des galaxies, de détecter de nouvelles exoplanètes ou d’analyser les cratères lunaires et les éruptions solaires. Astronomie Citoyenne : le Projet Zooniverse
L'astronomie citoyenne pour sauver l'humanité - Nouvelles technos Et si vous, internautes, pouviez contribuer à découvrir ce que les astronomes du monde entier cherchent depuis des années : une autre « Terre », à savoir une planète potentiellement habitable ? Petit rappel. En 1995, deux astronomes découvrent la première planète extrasolaire, baptisée du doux nom de 51 Peg B. Elle est le premier objet d’une longue liste aujourd’hui étendue à plusieurs centaines d'exoplanètes... mais il reste encore à identifier une vraie "jumelle" de notre Terre. Grâce à un tout nouveau site participatif - www.planethunters -, tous les internautes ont la possibilité d'aider les chercheurs à découvrir de nouvelles planètes extrasolaires.

Zooniverse Project Blogs Each year around this time we like to take stock of the size of the awesome Zooniverse population of volunteers. Last year we celebrated the fact that there were 740,000 of you. That number has swelled to 890,000 now – despite us making it easier and easier for anyone to take part without signing up for a Zooniverse account!
Galaxy Zoo: Hubble Few have witnessed what you're about to see Experience a privileged glimpse of the distant universe as observed by the SDSS, the Hubble Space Telescope, and UKIRT Roughly one hundred billion galaxies are scattered throughout our observable Universe, each a glorious system that might contain billions of stars. Many are remarkably beautiful, and the aim of Galaxy Zoo is to study them, assisting astronomers in attempting to understand how the galaxies we see around us formed, and what their stories can tell us about the past, present and future of our Universe as a whole. more The launch of this new version of Galaxy Zoo, the 4th, comes just a few weeks after the site’s 5th birthday. It all started back in July 2007, with a data set made up of a million galaxies imaged by the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, who still provide some of the images in the site today.

We find new planets by looking at how the brightness of a star changes over time As the planet passes in front of the star we see a dip in the light from it. Depending on how far the planet is from the star, you may see one or many dips in the lightcurve Can you spot the transits?
