Friday Favorites

In case you’re not aware of it, Snapshot Serengeti is still live. (Or I should say, live again, as it was down for a few days following the completion of Season 4.) The pictures up now are all from Season 4, but the ones of nothing but grass have been removed. So every picture should have something to see in it. We are still recording all the classifications that are made, so your classifications still count.

However, we think we have enough classifications for Season 4 to be able to get science out of it. So if you’re looking to really make an impact science-wise, try out one of the other Zooniverse projects. My personal favorites are Seafloor Explorer and Old Weather. (But if you’re really just loving the fuzzy animal pix, we understand if you want to hang out on Snapshot.)

Ali tells me that Season 5 is in transit! A hard drive with hundreds of thousands of images is somewhere between Arusha, Tanzania, and Saint Paul, Minnesota. We’ll be working on it soon to get it ready for you to classify.

Meanwhile, here are some lovely snapshots to tide you over:
