Happy Half-Birthday

The Milky Way Project is now 6 months old, so happy half-a-versary! More than 25,000 of you have now drawn over 1.5 million objects onto our galaxy – congratulations. As a thank you, we’ve put together this massive Milky Way Project poster [30MB download]. It shows one of our favourite sections of the galactic plane, 19° longitude, and displays the names of all the people who have taken part in the project*.

Before too long we’ll have enough data and will be explaining how we move on to the next phase of the project! Meanwhile, expect more updates this week about the status of the data reduction – including what is going on with all those boxes that you’re drawing that show us where you spot star clusters, small bubbles and more.

*Names are only shown for users who gave permission for us to show their name on the Zooniverse account settings. To update your settings login to  https://www.zooniverse.org/account and update the ‘name’ field.
