Galaxy Zoo 2 Author Poster

Zoo 2 Author Poster Sample

We’ve been meaning to do this for a while now and the Zooniverse Advent Calendar gives us the perfect excuse: the Galaxy Zoo 2 author poster. The poster shows the Sombrero Galaxy (M104) made up of the 51,000 names of Galaxy Zoo 2 volunteers who gave permission for us to display their names. Every person named on this poster has classified at least one galaxy and thus been a part of Zooniverse history.

You can download the smaller version (6.5MB) or the larger 7000 pixel version (25MB). You can take these posters and do what you like with them – print them, create wallpapers etc. You can also access the full list of names at if you want to get a better look at the list.

UPDATE: Thanks to some eagle-eyed users we noticed that we were missing a few names (about 16,000!) so the poster has been updated. The Galaxy Zoo 2 Authors page will be update tomorrow. Sorry for the mix up but I think we have it right now.

    It is such an honor to be associated with Galaxy Zoo, and tell people things like, “I helped do this!” I plan to print this poster (and the one for Zoo1), hang it on my office wall, and then find out if my eyes are still good enough to find my name (the names appear in random order- sort of a ‘where’s waldo’ concept). Thanks so much! What will we find next? I am proud of Galaxy Zoo and proud to be from the Milky Way, an awesome barred spiral!!
