SCIENCE AND FAITH

COMET HUNTERS

The fifth of our "Citizen Science" projects that the Community is actively involved in is Comet Hunters, an initiative of the Hyper Suprime-Cam Subaru Strategic Program and Public Suprime-Cam Data project.

 

Most comets come from the outer Solar System, but some have been found lurking in the asteroid belt. Project members search through images from the Subaru Telescope located on Mauna Kea in Hawaii to find these.
