Title: Sloan Digital Sky Survey
Url: https://www.sdss.org/
Publisher: Sloan Digital Sky Survey
Description: The Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) is one of the most ambitious and influential astronomical surveys in history, and "over eight years of operations, it obtained deep, multi-color images covering more than a quarter of the sky and created 3-dimensional maps containing more than 930,000 galaxies and more than 120,000 quasars." The website details the Astrophysical Research Consortium (ARC) mapmaking strategies, timelines, survey progress, and project goals. SDSS data have been released to the scientific community and the general public in annual increments, with the final public data release from SDSS-II occurring in October 2008. Here, visitors can view the many fantastic images collected at the Apache Point Observatory, the site of the SDSS telescopes. While a few of the data links are accessible only to collaborators, the general public can still retrieve SDSS data, an image gallery, educational tools, publications, and much more.
