The Relationship Between the Morphology and the Brightness
Captain Tanaka has analyzed the classification data from 1052 Japanese Citizen Astronomers between November 11, 2019 and January 10, 2020.Previous studies have shown brighter galaxies have a higher proportion of ellipticals. The statistical analysis using the classification data from Citizen Astronomers shows the tendency that brighter galaxies have a higher percentage of ellipticals.
