Using a Digital Camera to Measure Sky Glow

Image from theSkyNet.org What is theSkyNet? Your computer is bored. It has spare computing power nearly all the time that could be used to do something cool. So why not let it? By connecting 100s and 1000s of computers together through the Internet, it's possible to simulate a single machine capable of doing some pretty amazing stuff. That's what theSkyNet is all about - using your spare computing power to process radio astronomy data. theskynet.org
Image from Zooniverse.org The Zooniverse is home to the internet's largest, most popular and most successful citizen science projects. Our current projects are here but plenty more are on the way. If you're new to the Zooniverse, we suggest picking a project and diving in - the same account will get you into all of our projects, and you can keep track of what you've contributed by watching 'My Zooniverse'. zooniverse.org
We need your help to classify the internal structures of galaxies which are being observed by a survey called MaNGA. MaNGA (“Mapping Nearby Galaxies at Apache Point Observatory”) is part of the Sloan Digital Sky Surveys and is mapping the inner workings of thousands of nearby galaxies. This survey is taking spectra from up to 127 different points inside a hexagonal shape placed over a galaxy, and we want to know which of the features within the galaxy each spectrum is coming from, so we can separate light from spiral arms, galactic bars, bulges, nuclei and more. https://www.zooniverse.org/projects/klmasters/galaxy-zoo-3d
Help astronomers to find elusive muons disguised as gamma rays! https://www.zooniverse.org/projects/zooniverse/muon-hunter
Help scan the realm beyond Neptune for brown dwarfs and planet nine. https://www.zooniverse.org/projects/marckuchner/backyard-worlds-planet-9
Help explore Mars by discovering networks of polygonal ridges. https://www.zooniverse.org/projects/mschwamb/planet-four-ridges
Discover the COSMOS The Discover the COSMOS coordination action aims to demonstrate innovative ways to involve teachers and students in eScience through the use of existing e-infrastructures in order to spark young people's interest in science and in following scientific careers. http://www.discoverthecosmos.eu
Astronomers without borders One people, One Sky. The star-filled night fascinates us all. People have gazed upward at it in wonder and awe for thousands of years. Regardless of earthly differences in culture, nationality or religion, the heavens are a common meeting ground for all of Earth's inhabitants. The boundaries we place between us vanish when we look skyward. Whoever, whatever or wherever we are, we all share the same sky. http://www.astronomerswithoutborders.org/gam-blog/1127-astronomy-activities-for-people-with-disabilities.html
