Product Description
Students get to be among the first in history to view and classify galaxies, as part of the "Zooniverse" project. This lab exercise, including an open-ended extra credit section, should take 2-3 hours. Before letting students work on the lab, I show them either the Wikipedia entry or a video on youtube about Hanny's Voorwerp: a teacher in the Netherlands used this site to discover a wholly new bizarre celestial object. Along the way while classifying, students are introduced to the Doppler shift, its relation to distance, and the small angle formula to convert from angle and distance to linear size.
