Caption: University of Utah astronomer Anil Seth is helping launch the Andromeda Project at www.andromedaproject.org so that citizen volunteers can help scientists look for star clusters in Hubble Space Telescope images of Andromeda, the nearest large spiral galaxy to our own Milky Way, which also is a spiral galaxy. Star clusters provide clues to the evolution of galaxies.
