I always daydreamed about an exoplanet named after meeeeee

Post 48 of 134

After reading about some amateur astronomers who found an exoplanet in a four star system (this is the article I read on the Bad Astronomy Blog), I signed up for www.planethunters.org and very quickly became obsessed with analyzing all the data for a couple of hours. It’s pretty cool how you can see planet transits and solar flares so easily in the data. The more you look, the more you can discover. I felt the need to share some pretty data, so I felt I’d make a blog post about it ^^

 

 

I took an astronomy class during college and really enjoyed it. Maybe I’ll pursue my interest in astronomy more, find a new planet, and set off to colonize a new world in a spaceship full of ramen and cookies! YESSSSS!!!! ^^
