auf dieser flickr-group werden deine himmelsfotografien nach den abgebildeten sternbildern aufgelöst. kewl:)
The “blind astrometry server” is a program which monitors the Astrometry group on Flickr, looking for new photos of the night sky. It then analyzes each photo, and from the unique star positions shown it figures out what part of the sky was photographed and what interesting planets, galaxies or nebulae are contained within. Not only does the photographer get a high-quality description of what’s in their photo, but the main project gets a new image to add to its storehouse of knowledge.
Crowd-sourced sky cataloguing.
