Galaxy Matching Activity

Below are the list of objects for you to classify name. The different images for a given object will help you in finding its galaxy classification type. You should use various websites below to help you. The Palomar Digital Sky Survey can be actively searched to find the matches. You'll need to use other resources to determine the type of object.

Web Links

Do the lab first, and when you're done, and have created a Word Doc or some other typed out format, start up the test. Then, copy your answers into it as you go.

Click on an image to get it in a high-resolution format. You need to search for your objects on the Digitized Sky Survey. Go to that website, and enter the name of the object. Click "Get Coordinates", then at the bottom, choose "GIF" rather than "FITS". Also make the width equal to 60 and the height equal to 60 (arcminutes.) Choose from Red, Blue, or IR from the POSS2 survey. Then click on "Retrieve Image". Match that image with the ones below. You can also try it the hard way by matching it in Google searches. But, that takes a lot longer.
