This was one of my subtopics of my astronomy talk a while back!  "Hanny's Voorwerp" was my favorite example from the Galaxy Zoo!   Of course, amateur astronomers have been contributing to the science for decades! We have discovered comets as well as supernovae and now, thanks to the power and range of the Internet, we can do even more in cooperation with the big guys!

This is what is awesome.  Look how the private sector is doing the race to space.  You are getting the brains of the world who are underground that can totally contribute to the betterment of humans.

Well, we might not trust citizen scientists with nuclear physics :) but they make fine contributions to astronomy-
