Galaxy Zoo

A friend sent me a link the other day to a website called galaxy Zoo . Its purpose is to categorize a million galaxies. They're split into two main groups elliptical and spiral. Irregulars and Lenticulars are not included, the former being too faint and the second are classed as elliptical. What you do is is register with the site then progress to identify the different types of galaxies that they show you. Before you get to identify the galaxies, there is a test to make sure you know your galaxies. Its free to join so if you've got a few free hours, have a go.

You can decline to give a name which if that is the case, the comment will be attributed to a random star. A name is preferred even if its a random made up one by yourself.
