The Milky Way Project Talk
Difficult to tell but it might be a distant star forming region.
It's NGC7354, a planetary nebula. More info in the comments below and discussion "The Cosmic Peanut".
The tiny red dot might be - it's a tough call as the resolution is not so good on this image.
Red dots are either small star forming clouds or distant galaxies. Go with your instinct! Remember the MWP is currently in between datasets.
Here's my star cluster collection which might help a little http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/collections/CMWS00000q
I'm not an expert either but I think so too. 😃 They look very much like the examples in the guide.
The green centre & diffraction spikes are camera artifacts. Cameras are calibrated for tenuous MW dust & bright stars cause oversaturation,
It could be - tricky to tell.
This is a classic #bubble, a #starcluster and possibly an #EGO.
Difficult to say at this poor resolution. Could be a galaxy.
These are just the edges of the images!
It's an artifact. Something to do with the way adjacent images are incorrectly aligned. If I can find the explanation I'll post it.
That's big! So it's more likely a gas/dust cloud. Look out for the overlapping image - it has to be out there somewhere! Then we'll know.
That's likely a dense patch of gas and dust making an intense star forming region.
It's a missing data problem. More here from a team member: http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/boards/BMW0000004/discussions/DMW00002o2
The diffraction spikes and colours around the star are just artifacts I'm afraid. Spectacular - but not a quasar. http://tinyurl.com/p9zf8zt
See the comments and discussion for the (amazing) answer! 😉 NGC7354, a planetary nebula.
Yes this is infrared. There is more about the colour palette used here: http://tinyurl.com/mmswtto
Yes, I would classify that as a galaxy.
I would say that was a #bowshock too.
It is a very bright starforming region containing new stars or clusters of stars. 😃
This looks like a foreground star in front of the usual red gas / dust. The diffraction spikes have picked up some of the red too.
Read the thread and discussion for the answers! 😉 http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/boards/BMW0000005/discussions/DMW00002q4
This might help too: http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/boards/BMW0000006/discussions/DMW000029y
It's a bright oversaturated foreground star with diffraction spikes in front of a much more distant star forming cloud. Cool image. 😃
Yes - there are some diffraction apikes from the star and I also see some galaxies. In fact there are lots of galaxies in this image!
Looks like an oversaturated star.
Dusty star forming region certainly with a foreground bright Milky Way star.
Looks like an oversaturated star to me - complete with diffraction spikes. 😃
I would say that is a #galaxy.
You are right - here's an explanation from a team member: http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/boards/BMW0000004/discussions/DMW00002o2
That's an artifact unfortunately! Common around bright stars. http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/boards/BMW0000005/discussions/DMW00000xu
It's just an image artifact. Did you spot the galaxy? 😉
And welcome to the Milky Way Project! 😉
Extended Green Objects - Have a look at the Guide: http://www.milkywayproject.org/#/guide They are rare and the team want to study them.
That's up to us! There is a diffuse example in the guide: http://www.milkywayproject.org/#/guide so if I see a diffuse bubble I mark it.
That's a good one! I am thinking just a chance alignment but who knows? 😉 #dailyzoo
It does look like some of our other PNs - so it has to be a possibility.
It's a possibility!
That's a planetary nebula! Check the comments and discussions for details.
These are most likely distant galaxies! There are some examples here: http://www.milkywayproject.org/#/guide
It's a planetary nebula!
On the star? Probably just part of the artifact caused by over exposure.
That's an image artifact - it looks very blocky. There's a #galaxy hiding there too!
Have a look here: 😃 http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/boards/BMW0000005/discussions/DMW00002sm
Hi - All you have to do is classify and move on to the next image. There is no need to save or collect anything but you can if you want. 😃
Confirmed as NGC 7354 😃 http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/boards/BMW0000005/discussions/DMW00002q4
Tricky to say at that resolution. Could be an extension of the artifact from the bright star's diffraction spikes.
Just do your best TimNEwbank! If you're not sure you see anything it's OK to move on. Some of the blurred images are indeed a little tricky.
Could be! 😃
Not a planetary nebula - but a huge star forming cloud. 😃 And one from a previous batch of images (you can tell by the colours).
If you check the coordinates via Milkman (Explore) the stars do match up for NGC 7354. It's still my best guess anyway! 😉
😃 See the discussion for info! http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/boards/BMW0000005/discussions/DMW00002sm
Planetary Nebula! See the discussion for details 😃 http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/boards/BMW0000005/discussions/DMW00002q4
We see those artifacts at the edge of the image field when the filters don't quite line up.
I'd say that is a big, bright cluster in a star forming cloud. 😃
I think the stars would be too faint to be part of a constellation. As for the small cloud - #bowshock maybe? :-\
Bright star forming region maybe...
Not all images have features to mark - so it's OK if you don't see anything!
It's our friend NGC7354 again! http://tinyurl.com/mnct9nx
That's what the MWP hopes to find out! They're green because of the Spitzer colour scheme. More here (with links) http://tinyurl.com/ld9zknu
NGC 7354- PN! See discussion for details. 😃
I think I found it. NGC7354 planetary nebula - see discussion for links.
If you zoom right in (ctrl and +) it looks a little like a #bowshock but it's a tough call. Lovely #starcluster #pillars and #bubble though!
This looks like an artifact - it's very blocky and looks artificial. They are often seen near image edges. Need the image above to check!
It DOES! #dailyzoo
Yes you are right @indiegirl! 😃
Probably an artifact - it looks very blocky and artificial. We often see green artifacts near the image edges.
That has to be a good candidate!
Well spotted! You can mark this kind of thing as #triggered as the science team want to know about them. http://tinyurl.com/knsh6qu
Possibly 6 #galaxies!
Yes - I've seen a few of these too. We started a #greencloud tag to mark them.
Good question. Too pixelly to tell really. Think I would have gone for #ego just in case.
Hmm - looks more like a #galaxy to me!
Could that be a #bowshock too?
They're taking over!!
Big background ellipticals maybe?
This is the 3rd #greencloud I've come across. Links to the others here http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/subjects/AMW000361a
#bowshock top right
@Jeandrews Just down from the centre where the bright gas takes on a bow shape. Not completely convinced though.
Just bumping this up again - would love to know if it's just a bright star cluster or something else.
Another greeny dusty region like this one: http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/subjects/AMW0003b0w #greencloud
Not for me - but I did spot the #pillars!
#starclusters #bubbles possible #planetarynebula and 2 lovely contrasting stars. Nice job Milky Way! 😃
#starclusters No idea what the greeny dusty region is but here's another http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/subjects/AMW000361a #greencloud
2 pixelly #starclusters
Indeed wow! 😄 😄
Nice #starcluster too. Wonder if the blue-green colour is a variant of an #ego ?
This is how the GLIMPSE colour scheme shows many stars. More here: http://www.astro.wisc.edu/sirtf/ Scroll down to What do the Colors Mean?
I see it - are there more background galaxies in this batch of images? Or is is just me...?
I see it.
That looks like a #starcluster. Sometimes very bright stars produce a green artifact - confusing!
Green = ionized and shocked gas at 4.5 um. And EGOs are still proving a mystery!
Have a look here: http://www.astro.wisc.edu/sirtf/ Scroll down to What do the Colors Mean? GLIMPSE colours are most like MWP colours.
Starforming cloud. Here's another view http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/subjects/AMW00035oo
Ah I see what you mean, I was looking at the wrong bubble! That is an interesting one. Might still be a bubble!
That is a bubble. A perfect bubble. 😃
It could be an odd looking pillar. Would love to see the image below this one!
We see a few of these. It could be a bubble or maybe a #planetarynebula or maybe something else! Look out for a closer view. 😃
#starcluster #bubble and maybe just maybe #bowshock
Just came across it again in this view: http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/subjects/AMW00036bu
It's the cosmic paw again! http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/subjects/AMW000364d #bubbles
The colours all represent different IR wavelengths. More here: http://www.astro.wisc.edu/sirtf/
Nice image! I see at least 5 bubbles, no ego and probably no cluster for me. But I do see the giant cosmic paw! 😉 #dailyzoo
It's a starforming cloud with a new star or cluster of new stars at the top.
Yes it does! 😉
Just coincidence! It's one of those line of sight effects that astronomy often fools us with. 😃
And there is also a tiny starforming cloud above and slightly left of the larger one. Busy image! 😃
I see a small starforming cloud (right) and a very faint bubble on the left with 3 bright stars (which have nothing to do with the bubble!)
Looks like there's a #galaxy in there too.
That could be another #planetarynebula candidate. 😃 Or a distant gas and dust cloud...
This looks like a good candidate to me!
It's a starforming cloud of gas and dust and I see some #pillars. See the Guide for more information. 😃 http://tinyurl.com/p9zf8zt
You've made a great start! Maybe even 2 star clusters in that image. 😃
Well done bow shock spotters!! 😄
Yes - that's a very bright star cluster. Not sure about the ego as bright stars often produce green artifacts but I do see what you mean.
Great image! With a possible huge #ego
I'd say that is a bright star with a star cluster surrounded by nebulosity below and to the right.
It's a star forming cloud. Might be the tip of a pillar-even looks like a bubble at the tip. Think I had another view but can't find it!
They are small gas clouds. Could be #triggered regions. See here: http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/boards/BMW0000004/discussions/DMW1000a32
If you mean #bowshock and you think it is one then it's fine to mark it as such. 😃
Still waiting for a team member to comment on this one.
That is certainly worth marking as one - #bowshocks are tricky to spot but that's certainly a candidate. Well spotted! 😃
I agree with you Mathey - 2 dusty clouds, the right one much more starforming than the left - as is the one at the bottom of the image.
Another for the star forming cloud v #planetarynebula debate!
That's a bright star forming region. Difficult to say how near to the faint bubble it is.
Yes - it's an optical artifact. Very bright stars do weird things to the optics and this is the result.
Doesn't really look like the pillars from the Guide so maybe a gas and dust ribbon.
My guess would be distant galaxies.
I would mark that as a galaxy too.
A perfect circle! Has to be a #planetarynebula candidate.
This is it zoomed in http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/subjects/AMW00039np - and looks more like a multiple bubble region.
#planetarynebula? It has a faint ring around the bright red one which made me think it might be.
#galaxy (or two) bottom right
#starcluster - zoomed out version of this: http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/subjects/AMW00038yr
#starcluster and a lovely illuminated ribbon of gas and dust.
#galaxy or #planetarynebula
#galaxy for me too.
I agree! 😃
And this: http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/subjects/AMW0002ukg
Or maybe the dimmer blob is a #planetarynebula? This is similar: http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/subjects/AMW0001nb0
That looks to me like a dark dust lane in front of a very bright starforming region. Lovely image.
Yes - #galaxy!
#galaxy for me.
Could be. I would mark it as a galaxy just in case.
Good question! Could it be a #planetarynebula? I'll see if I can get someone to have a look.
I think the centre blob is a star forming region / bubble. Maybe the dull feature is too - just further away and dimmer.
Star factory is a good name! This looks like a starforming region to me too.
It's a very bright starforming region, possibly with a #starcluster in there too.
I would also have marked them as #ego. 😃
Not sure about this one - possible #planetarynebula or more likely (I think) a star forming region - good spot though!
I'd say that was a very bright cluster or starforming region with a lovely long nebulous tail of gas and dust.
Worth marking I'd say. Possible #starcluster too.
Maybe an #ego. Very pixelly.
Inside a spaceship with a window seat...
#starcluster x 2
#starcluster #bubble #ego
The milkiest part of the Milky Way! 😃
yes - possible tiny, tiny #ego
No ego - those are the star artifacts that masquerade as egos!
They are camera #artifacts - we often see them at the edges of the field.
We've had similar images and IIRC it's a star forming region pushing out 2 bubbles. Our line of sight makes it look extra interesting!
I see a dusty #bubble, a #pillar and a bright foreground star. 😃
That's a good one! Not sure it's a galaxy- looks like a bubble at an oblique angle. Or could it be a planetary nebula? Time to ask the team!
#dailyzoo - treasure in the Milky Way! 😄
Look like artifacts to me along with the yellow spaceship wing. 😃
Not convinced I see one...
Yellowballs from phase 1 won't be yellow in this phase as we're using a different colour palette! http://tinyurl.com/o92cdmk
Like the Horsehead nebula in Orion. 😃
As I understand it the dark (brown/black) nebulae are so dusty they block light from any stars behind them. So they are not "lit up."
S/he's obviously watching you!
Yes - partial bubbles and a double bubble - a nice number 8! 😃
No - that's an artifact. More here http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/boards/BMW0000006/discussions/DMW000029y
Yes I'd say so - a dark nebula.
Interesting! Might even be an #EGO in there too.
And I'm not sure what they would even look like in phase 2. EGOs seem to have have replaced yellowballs as objects of interest now.
There's a useful discussion on EGOs here http://tinyurl.com/ld9zknu We understand that the green around stars in likely not EGOs.
😃 So it does! More #pareidolia for #dailyzoo
😃 Nice double bubble - and a lovely single one too. And I'm wondering of there's a #planetarynebula inbetween the two.
I think I would go for partial #bubble too.
I see what you mean. Probably a line of sight thing - a star in front of one or two red gas clouds.
Ooh - those eyes! Another #dailyzoo candidate. #pareidolia Nice catch @nickdwyer53
Milky Way project meets Galaxy Zoo! #dailyzoo #spiralgalaxy clockwise!
Not the one I was thinking of but I like this double. 😃 http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/subjects/AMW0002cqr
That's a bright foreground star.. I have seen larger ones - just trying to find an example!
Wow! Just wow! #dailyzoo for it's #pillars and general awesomeness. 😃
And here too: http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/boards/BMW0000006/discussions/DMW000029y
Just an optical artifact unfortunately - have a look here: http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/boards/BMW0000005/discussions/DMW00000xu
From here: http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/subjects/AMW0002na7 😃
It's the weird plankton beastie again! http://daily.zooniverse.org/2014/11/25/plankton-in-spaaaaaaaaaaace/
Might be another one of these - http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/subjects/AMW0002ie0
Gorgeous! Bumping it as a candidate for a #dailyzoo
If in doubt mark is as one!
I don't see one here.
#pillars #starcluster #bubbles #triggered
#starcluster very #triggered
😄 😄 And there's an upside down jellyfish below it...! #dailyzoo
Yes, these are worth marking Rita9596. Don't forget the hashtag! #egos. It helps when searching for collections of things. 😃
Me neither, The green blobs are artifacts caused by very bright stars. I think our guide http://tinyurl.com/p9zf8zt could do with updating!
some perfect #bubbles #triggered
I think this is more likely a #bubble
I might have classified this as part of a big bubble. I think I see a small #pillar too! 😃
Or star in front of an #ego? 😕
Could be an unusual #EGO or a region of green gas (green represents wavelength of 4.5 microns)- have a look here http://tinyurl.com/mmswtto
Well the big bright spiky thing is a star - so yes, a sun! The small green and red blobs are likely distant star forming regions.
These green blobs close to stars are artifacts unfortunately. http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/boards/BMW0000005/discussions/DMW00000xu
Really nice - not seen that one before, Another for my collection!
I agree jamieschod! Lots going on here. And lots of #triggered regions.
Would that be bottom right? I'm edging towards star forming bubbles but could be either!
Very poetic @leonie van vliet!
Yes - I've marked that as a bubble!
I knew I'd missed a hashtag there!! Defo #dailyzoo. 😃
#starcluster and wispy #bubbles
string of #egos
😄 Zeus made the Daily Zooniverse! http://daily.zooniverse.org/2014/08/20/faces-in-space/
2 #starclusters, #bubbles, hint of a #bowshock maybe? #dailyzoo
I think the "tail" is a line of sight effect caused by well placed illuminated background gas. Had to enlarge this for a proper look though!
Have a look here for phase 2 colour scheme help: http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/boards/BMW0000001/discussions/DMW00000aj
Found this earlier discussion of green stars! http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/boards/BMW0000004/discussions/DMW000002t
I think that's just an imaging artifact making some of the normally blue stars look green. Very bright stars and clusters have a green tint.
😮 Nice find! I wonder what made the gas and dust expand like that?
I think you are right - a wisp of dust and gas from another nebula just out of shot. Your challenge is to find the rest of it! 😉
#galaxy top right
#ego or #artifact
Yep - #ego.
Just a #doublestar / #binary I suppose.
#repeat - but nice to see the #starcluster and dusty clouds again!
huge #bubble, tiny #bubble, #ego, and at least two #starclusters!! 😃
An #ego or two!
Maybe. Maybe not. 😉 You tagged it so the team can find it! I think I'll let them decide.
Another potential #planetarynebula maybe? You do have good eyes!
And I think 11 o'clock is a gas cloud / bubble - both the little one and the one right on the edge.
Interesting! One for the experts! Good catch.
Could it be a #bowshock? Or a bubble remnant? 😕
It looks like a bubble within a bubble!
Wonderful #pillars shocko61!
Probably just the usual red dust cloud but it's not very distinct. There might be a better resolution version so keep a look out!
Potential #planetarynebula. 😃 Here's another view: http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/subjects/AMW000237t
Very nice! 😃
Could be a ring of nebulosity around a star forming region rather than a planetary nebula. Seen several rings like this - good one though!
Not sure where you mean Bill - at this resolution I don't see anything out of the ordinary. Did I miss something?
Curious. Nice find. 😃
Wow! The science team said somewhere that orange = ionized, pink = neutral. Not sure about purple!
I do! I think it probably is just a break in the cloud though it does look extra black. Good spot on the #ego though! 😃
Perfect circle. #Bubble or #planetarynebula - not entirely convinced but just maybe?
Possible #planetarynebula? Just right of centre - the ring around a central star had me wondering.
Wow - at least 3 #starclusters there too. I'm guessing the star looks green due to the gas and dust it's lighting up.
No explosion - you'll find that the brighter stars have diffraction spikes. Some are quite spectacular.
We're looking for bubbles. There's certainly some star forming going on here and maybe a faint bubble too.
Wow! Maybe an #ego and a #starcluster too.
Don't see an ego but that's one heck of a multi-bubble! 😃
We now know these are #artifacts. More here: http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/boards/BMW0000005/discussions/DMW00000xu
This region contains a few compact regions of star formation. Maybe the one you refer to is just a line of sight effect? #triggered
#bubble for me. 😃 I can make out most of the bubble.
I think it's probably a star - but no harm in tagging it.
Best to flag it up as an #ego and let the science team decide - so good move drbmcclelland!
#galaxy top left?
Curious! Doesn't look like a star. Did you mark it as object - other? Or even #ego.
Here's another view: http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/subjects/AMW0001pk9
The red blobs are image #artifacts. Maybe because the stars are particularly bright. What an unusual image!
Weird optical effect or #ego?
My best #pillar yet.
That's just an #artifact. Not quite sure how it's produced but you'll see a few similar blue dots in other images.
Yep - lots of #starforming regions and #bubbles.
Yes this is addictive and you're doing a great job helping science! What's not to like? 😉
There's one I'd mark as a potential bowshock. 😃
Star forming #bubble or #galaxy! Think I'm edging towards bubble.
This must be a contender for the Milky Way flag! 😛
Could be. You have keen eyes!
Here's the discussion: http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/boards/BMW0000005/discussions/DMW00000xu
We thought they might be egos at first but the team confirmed that these are green #artifacts - a consequence of an oversaturated star.
That's a really nice nebula - more gas and dust . 😃 One of the scientists posted somewhere else that orange = ionized, pink = neutral.
It's a star forming bubble of gas and dust.
Or new star?
Good eyesight! Could just be line of sight effect - though it does remind me of some Star Date M83 clusters!
Yep. It's an overlapping image pane.
Smaller regions of activity on larger bubbles. It's all here:
Could be. Here's another view: http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/subjects/AMW000237t
#galaxy? centre ish
Closer and appearing brighter than the rest and over-saturating the camera!
Yes! How can I help?
Tricky. Could be 2 red bubbles.
Tricky - but I'd say gas cloud for that one - but the #bowshock has to be a contender.
#galaxy bottom left maybe.
Not a lot going on there! That's one of those images where I wouldn't have marked anything.
Or possibly women... 😉
A star forming bubble I would say.
Or even #bubbles! Lovely!
#repeat - again!
Good question! It's a #galaxy and #planetarynebula candidate so let's tag it!
Just had this one! #repeat
Bit of a #doube-bubble thing going on and #triggered
Could be! Lots in common with our other examples. Hard to tell some apart from a perfect bubble.
star #cluster I think.
I would say so - and another 2 for my collection!
Potential #bowshock maybe? Or a #bubble remnant.
That's the #planetarynebula from here: http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/subjects/AMW0002ijz Love it! 😄
I don't think so - well going by the Guide pics. They are rare beasts! I'm not convinced I've found one yet.
You certainly won't do that! :)Ask as many questions as you like - any the mods or oldbies can't answer we'll ask a team member to chip in.
If you mean the spot in the centre of the big star it's an #artifact due to oversaturation of the sensors. There are lots of these!
And the red dot is either a tiny gas cloud or more likely an #artifact.
I don't see any galaxies but I could be wrong! Go with what you think as each image will be looked at by many people. Fine to be liberal!
Nice catch! 😃
Potential #planetary-nebula but probably just a small star forming region.
Yep - an oversaturated star #artifact. There are lots of these. I have a collection! 😄
Looks like oversaturated stars. Maybe shining through the ego has made them appear yellow in these images.
Not sure. It's the same colour as the other nebulosity so maybe not a PN this time. You've rightly tagged it though so the team can look!
I'm not convinced it's a galaxy - but mark whatever you think it is!
A #bowshock or 2 maybe.
Just a couple of stars in line I think.
@sundog1a You seem to have the knack of finding these - got any more? 😉
Right click - view image then use ctrl and "+" to zoom in. That's the only way I can think of.
Looks like another #planetarynebula. Great find! 😃 http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/subjects/AMW0002ukg
#bowshock? Though I'm not totally convinced.
#ego bottom right
Good question! Maybe a filter problem? Though I don't know why there should be oversaturated blue just there and nowhere else.
Don't forget the hashtag - #ego. Makes them lovely and searchable. 😃
Well that has to be worth a #planetarynebula hashtag!
Wow! Isn't it just.
I would say no ego but yes #galaxy! Good spot.
I still think #ego but put what you think it is! And don't forget the hashtag!
I would mark it as an #ego too.
Thanks gwolfchase. Had to google that one. http://tinyurl.com/pqx2hmx was the best. Click "look inside."
Here it is: http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/boards/BMW0000005/discussions/DMW00000xu
That's an odd one. Doesn't look stellar or galaxy-like or like an artifact. Hopefully someone will let us know! #weird
I remember a discussion about them being artifacts so near to stars. Trying to find it! If in doubt mark it and the science team will decide
Probably just an #artifact that close - but the science team will decide!
#egos maybe or #artifacts
Maybe 2 #galaxies
It's part of this: http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/subjects/AMW0002vzu and http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/subjects/AMW0002vrw Lovely!
Here it is - it gets everywhere! 😉 http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/subjects/AMW0002vrw
Yeah - I seem to remember Science team Rob said somewhere that was an #artifact.
You have keen eyes! I'd say yes.
Interesting oversaturation #artifacts
So did I! 😉
2 star #clusters - and #bubbles
Impressive #ego or annoying #artifact?
That's cute! Looks to have a central star with stars embedded in the ring. Chance alignment most likely but very cool!
We are not asked to classify these. It's OK to skip some images.
I would agree. Not every image has something to mark - as in this case.
That looks like a dusty cloud to me but I could be wrong! That's why it's good to have so many of us look at these images.
Some images don't have any objects in them so if you can't see anything to mark - that's fine!
I think so! Good spot.
I have a collection of spotty stars! No scientific use whatsoever - just cool! http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/collections/CMWS0001hm
@HunterG - yep I think you're right.
Extended Green Artifacts!
So possibly an #ego or two.
My best #cluster yet!
This is bubble number 3!
odd #ego on the left?
#ego bottom middle
This is how bright stars look to Spitzer - they oversaturate the camera sensor and cause all kinds of (cool) artifacts.
I see it! 😃
Good one! I'd go for #EGO too. (Don't forget the hashtag it helps us and the science team search for things.)
I can only agree! 😃 Lovely dusty pink.
#bowshock ? maybe
😄 This one just wants to be famous! http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/subjects/AMW0002swx and http://tinyurl.com/pxf5c5u
Something for everyone here! #bubbles #EGO possible #bowshock #cluster
Worth flagging as a #bowshock - nice find!
Is this green nebulosity rather than an #EGO?
It's your call! 😄 That's the beauty of getting lots of people to look at the same image.
I think that's an #artifact - maybe a hot pixel. EGOs are fuzzier - have you seen the Guide? http://www.milkywayproject.org/#/guide
#ego or #artifact Similar to http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/subjects/AMW0002vbn
Here's a similar #ego / #artifact: http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/subjects/AMW0001oja
Nice star #cluster
Here's another view: http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/subjects/AMW0002r55
Here's another one http://talk.milkywayproject.org/#/subjects/AMW0002zsz Just another effect of an over saturated sensor-interesting though!
possible star #cluster
Just go for what you think are tight associated groups of stars http://www.milkywayproject.org/#/guide
I think this is where multiple classifications will decide the tricky ones.
Even small #egos deserve recognition! 😉
That would be cool! But I think that's just part of the artifact caused by the really bright star. (Beaten to it by JCoop!)
small #ego to the right of the pink cloud
Maybe a #pillar centre top? Not the best example!
Now *they" are nice! Still to find some for myself in the new stuff.
#ego and a nice partial #bubble
Thought this might be a #bowshock - now not so sure. But just in case...
Good question. Wondering if that's just lens flare from the bright star.
small #ego maybe?
#artefact #yellowball #smallbubble
Reminds me of the nexus in StarTrek Generations....
Definitely a #starcluster 😃
Stunning very active region.
#yellowball - one or two here.
Now there's a poster image if ever I saw one!

More #overlapping bubbles here.
#overlapping bubbles here.
Difficult to tell if there are bubbles in this one or just "folds" in the nebulosity. I went for bubbles.
