SuperWASP Variable Stars is a Zooniverse citizen science project in which the public label photometric light curve plots showing potential variations in stellar brightness. The volunteers label each plot as one of several types of variable star, or as “unknown” or “junk”. Their labels are combined to produce an aggregated classification. We are publishing the first data release from the project via an interactive website called VeSPA. The results can be searched, filtered, and exported in CSV format. Raw FITS data is available to download.
