Citizen Scientist: The Stellar Classification Project
The public is invited to classify stars that have never been observed before by astronomers.
The STELLAR CLASSIFICATION ONLINE - PUBLIC EXPLORATION (SCOPE) project allows the public access to at least a million star images on scanned photographs. The photographs are located in the Astronomical Photographic Data Archive at PARI.
Anyone in the world can inspect the star images and classify the stars according to their temperatures and luminosities. Click on SCOPE to learn more and begin your journey into our stellar neighborhood!
