Try Your Hand at Hunting Extrasolar Planets

The latest entry on my Astronomy by Internet page is Planet Hunters, another project from the Zooniverse team. Planet Hunters is using public data released by the Kepler mission to look for planets around other stars and to make new discoveries about variable stars. The project is based out of Yale University.

Want to try your hand at finding the next extrasolar planet or odd variable star? Log on and start checking those light curves. You can follow the team’s work on their blog or through their Twitter feed.
