You find yourself saying Who rather than What ship.

It seems that April must never have been scanned

Some fool involved?

Please help us test our new Anti-Slavery Manuscripts project

Hi there,
We need you to test a new transcription project - Anti-Slavery Manuscripts

In this project, we're asking our volunteers to help transcribe Boston Public Library's collection of handwritten correspondence between anti-slavery activists in the 19th century into texts that can be more easily read and researched by students, teachers, historians, and big data applications.
This is a custom project with brand-new tools, so we need your help to make sure everything is working as it should! Try it out now at and give us your feedback via the form linked in the top right of the project website.

Thanks for your help!

Cyclone Center needs your help

Hi there,

Your help is needed on one of the Zooniverse's longest-running projects - Cyclone Center

By taking part in Cyclone Center you will improve our understanding of tropical cyclone winds and structure. The recent and ongoing devastation by hurricanes in the Atlantic shines a light on human's vulnerability to these storms.

We're excited to make available a new set of images to classify. They are satellite pictures of storms taken when aircraft were flying through and taking observations. The aircraft were measuring the wind speed of the tropical cyclone in order to provide forecasters and scientists with a more accurate estimate of the maximum strength. By comparing your classifications to the observations, we can better estimate the strength of other storms which do not have the luxury of direct observation.     

We already have several thousand classifications of these storms but need 100,000 more before we can continue with our work. Just a few classifications today from each of you will be more than enough! We will be standing by awaiting your questions and discoveries. 

Get involved right now at

Thanks for your help!

Just click through the message that says "Sorry, this storm has run out of subjects"

Grant is looking into it.

20 new candidates discovered!

Hi there,

This week we are testing a solution to the misalignment problem. The method removed about 4000 subjects from this week's batch. It's not perfect and I still expect some to slip through to the project.  It would be great if you could let me know in the talk forums how this week's data compares to previous weeks.

Last week you helped us discover another 20 new supernova candidates! These have been uploaded to the Transient Name Server and added to the Results page.

Get hunting right now for supernovae at

Happy hunting!

Darryl and the Supernova Hunters Team

Maybe Expo Grounds ?
