Hi Pevik,

welcome to the forum.  :D

It's nice to hear that you are enjoying the SSW challanges.

To your first question:
First of all, it's quite improbable that one particular example of any challenge is only sent out to newbies. There are still a couple of us SSWers from the first days around. But then also if newbies still lack sufficient experience with the challenges then it's also improbable that they will all "mis"classify the same way. This has the effect that of cancelling "wrong" ansers out. Statistical analyses of the Galaxy Zoo answers indicate this. So no need to worry to much at the moment.

The example in your second question seems to be just the borderline case where the CME starts exactly at one end of the blue bar. In these cases I've taken the freedom to classify the storm. I interpret the instructions for Trace It such that everything that starts at the bar is interesting, no matter whether above or at the sides.

Hope that helps. Have fun classifying.  :)

cheers

What do you need help with? If you're having trouble starting all together, try going to the "Spot and Track Storms" tab at the top of the screen. Then, click on "Spot training" to learn how to do this project.

Yep - spot videos are great to start with. There are so many tasks on Solar Stormwatch it can be a bit confusing but just take your time and work through them all. You'll soon find the ones you like best! If you need help just shout.

I am officially rubbish at spotting comets in these videos!  ???  ::) Seriously - people post comet sightings that take me ages to spot - but that's good in a way. It certainly helps train the eye when you know there's one lurking there. Have you seen Quialiss' brilliant video index? It includes some comet videos to help you get a feel for them.

And before you ask - yes, I did spot McNaught. With no help at all! :D
