I was just watching the weekly science program on the French CBC TV channel  and there was a short segment on citizen science by Julie Peyette, one of our Canadian astronauts. After describing several field projects, such as gathering information on Monarch butterflies, she introduced Zooniverse and focused on Old Weather long enough to see a log page. It was a nice surprise. 

Have a look at Julie Peyette's impressive bio: https://www.jsc.nasa.gov/Bios/htmlbios/payette.html

Well blow me down - what a gal!  :o :o ;D
If she applies to join the forum I'll say 'yes' :D

OldWeather was mentioned again in the latest edition of Astronomy and Geophysics, as part of a larger article on climate change science. At a glance it mostly looked like the previous A&G article (the same graph showing Jeanette's ice records, which is how I spotted it!).

Either way it's great to be getting exposure steadily in one place or another  :D
