Identifying Asteroids

Citizen Science Project
Asteroid Zoo

The project I completed for my citizen science project was the Asteroid Zoo project. O basically identified asteroids, or artifacts, or nothing in a span of four frames back to back to detect unknown asteroids or artifacts in outer space. You could select asteroids, and highlight them in a negative photo, or a color frame which was a bunch of color highlighting objects. I had done two previous projects like the penguin identifier, but I did not feel it was useful, but the asteroid project I actually got to participate in identifying objects in space that other people had not seen. I felt this project was actually going to help the environment and Earth to notice asteroid coming close to Earth, aiding with the other scientists doing this also.
