2 Million images!!

Moon Zoo isn’t yet I year old but last week the 2 millionth classification was made. This represents an amazing number of craters measured, boulders examined and interesting features marked. To get an idea of the size of the area this represents just look at some of the equivalent measurements:

  • 46,336 square miles (that’s 120,010 square km!)
  • 2,000 Manhattans
  • 2.91 Switzerlands
  • 272,748 Vaticans
  • 13,187,802 Taj Mahals
  • 352,979 Disneylands

So how much of the Moon have we done? Half? A quarter? Not even anywhere near! This represents just 0.3% of the Moon so there’s plenty of Moon left yet. So thanks a million (or two) to everybody and keep on clicking! Don’t forget to check the Moonometer(TM) from time to time to see how we’re doing.
