Galaxy Zoo palette
« on: October 28, 2011, 04:44:21 pm »
Hi everyone,

I have a search which I imagine Zooites will absolutely fantastic at helping with. The GZ team is building advanced tools for the Zoo, and we think this could be potentially useful (and interesting!) for methods in which you could choose galaxies by color. We're interested in getting examples of galaxies representing each color in the palette (ie, a nice red galaxy, an orange galaxy, a yellow galaxy, etc). It could start with one galaxy each for the ROYGBIV colors, and maybe be extended to see if we could get a good match for a larger range of colors (ie, one for each crayon in the box):



I know getting a "gray" or "deep purple" galaxy will be rare and challenging, but I know some fantastic galaxies have already been discovered. Please contribute to the collection if you know of good examples - thanks for helping!

- cheers,
Kyle

Hi everyone,

I'm Tommy, I'm also working with the science team.  Thanks for all these great suggestions!  It would be really great if you could also tell us what color you think your example galaxy represents, so that we can assign them to the various crayons.

Cheers,
Tommy

Thanks to Alice for sticking this, and to zutopian for the link. That post is an excellent resource for additional colours.
