A three-panel image. The center panel shows a circle over part of the night sky. The left and right panels point to objects in the center panel. Left is an image and a spectrum of a quasar, right is an image and a spectrum of a white dwarf.

The Sloan Digital Sky Survey’s fifth generation collected its very first observations of the cosmos at 1:47 a.m. on October 24, 2020. As the world’s first all-sky time-domain spectroscopic survey, SDSS-V will provide groundbreaking insight into the formation and evolution of galaxies — like our own Milky Way — and of the supermassive black holes that lurk at their centers.
