Could use some Daily Zooniverse suggestions...
« on: January 08, 2015, 06:57:41 pm »
Hey Solar Stormwatch,

I'm working on putting together some upcoming posts for the Daily Zooniverse (daily.zooniverse.org). I could use some particularly cool things to share from Solar Stormwatch.

Could anyone offer any suggestions of the coolest/most unique things you've all run into lately?

Thank you!!

Looking at the previous daily zoos from SSW, we've never featured Comet McNaught!  A grave oversight, as it's one of the most stunning things STEREO has ever captured.

Al's (algwat) version with a mirrored McNaught as a dove has to be my favorite artistic presentation of the comet.


Any and all notes on the observations of comet McNaught and the amazingly fortuitous timing of STEREO coming online just before the comet's perihelion can be found on the sungrazer website.  Possibly the most amazing thing to show off the field of view and sensitivity of a (at the time) new mission!

Maccholz and Encke, in that order.

Do I know those two the second I see them?  Maaaaaaaaaaaybe.  :)

It would be neat to do an comparison of McNaught(lucky to ever see it!), Encke/Maccholz(one every year or three) and the much more common little ones that are so easy to miss (ie http://www.solarstormwatch.com/favourites/229 )
