Write Your Name in Galaxies

The universe contains billions of galaxies, and the Sloan Digital Sky Survey has already photographed millions of them. But each galaxy is different — some are elongated, some are circular… If you look closely at a galaxy and kind of squint, you can make out pictures or even shapes of letters.

The folks at GalaxyZoo have done just that, and now let you type in any word to see it in “galaxy form.” It’s just for fun, of course, but these photos are real images of galaxies! Try it out for yourself here at writing.galaxyzoo.org.
