Link: Zooniverse Disk Detective

Disk Detective is the newest Zooniverse citizen science project.  Volunteers delve into more than 500,000 objects seen at different wavelengths, and help pick out potential circumstellar disks.

An animated gif I made scrolling through different wavelengths on Disk Detective.

The idea is super cool, the bit of classifying I did was fun, and the website looks great. Outstanding job!

Erika Nesvold has a nice writeup of the project on Astrobites.
