NASA’s Astrophoto Challenges include two challenges: the MicroObservatory Challenge and the NASA Data Challenge. Enter either challenge – or both! – and the MicroObservatory and NASA’s Universe of Learning team could select your work as a standout entry for feedback from NASA scientists!
Capture your own real-time telescope image of the Whirlpool Galaxy, and process it with MicroObservatory’s JS9-4L tool.
Then consider how the image you processed compares to an image of the Whirlpool Galaxy processed by NASA.
2.NASA Data Challenge
Select any of NASA’s images of the Whirlpool Galaxy (available here), and process them with MicroObservatory’s JS9-4L tool.
Use all the techniques you’ve learned with MicroObservatory to process real NASA data and create your best image.
Who can participate?
Anyone! You just need an email address to receive any images you take with the MicroObservatory robotic telescopes.
If you are 12 or younger, you will need to have your parent/guardian do this activity with you.
