Galaxy Zoo Talk

First classification.

  • PoorPDOP by PoorPDOP

    I was curious about a few things. I am very new to this and was hoping maybe there was a tutorial on the site?
    Also, when I choose "features or disks" it asks if this disk could be viewed "edge-on" I am a but unsure of the meaning here...

    Hi PoorPDOP and welcome to the Zoo

    A spiral or disk galaxy seen edge on looks like a thin stripe, sometimes wuth a bulge.

    If you click on 'Examples' during classification you get some images to help you. or els, you just ask !

    Happy hunting ! 😄
