    That's the FOURTH time I've seen this object, variously framed. Does that mean there actually aren't very many bits of sky on offer?

    I am getting repeats also.

    For this run of the Milky Way Project, we're trying to have users view the sky on different spatial scales. This helps to identify objects that are appear smaller because they are farther away. I'm not sure how the algorithm works, but its possible there is intentional repeating of certain areas in order to have the same individual see the sky on different scales.
