The millionth click
It’s been a great day – we sailed past our target of 1 million clicks in 100 hours late this Saturday morning. The site became a little sluggish as the couter got closer and closer to the 1 million mark, probably because everyone was hitting the refresh button (I know I was!).
Anyway, we made it and with plenty of time to spare. We’ll keep the Zoonometer™ until the end of the 100 hours to see how far we get – my bet is for something close to 1.5 million.
So I know you all want to know. Who made the 1 millionth click and what was the galaxy? The galaxy that received the 1 millionth click was this this gem SDSS J084054.83+422839.8:
The Zooite to make the 1 millionth click was jdavenport. jdavenport joined Galaxy Zoo back in August 2008 when the original Galaxy Zoo was still active. jdavenport has also classified a serious number of galaxies: 531! Thanks jdavenport for all of your help with Galaxy Zoo and thanks to all of you for helping us achieve 1 million clicks in (less than) 100 hours!
