That's odd, in Firefox (on Mac) your link works.

It also works for me in Chrome (Mac).

cheers,

I had the same problem on 5/31 before I started getting the service unavailable error.  I'm running Windows 10 version 21H2 and Chrome v 102.0.5005.63.   WWT launches, but just does not pan to the uploaded image. It looks like the image is not transferred to the WWT.

Hi,

Okay, so on Safari (Mac), if I click the WWT link in the OP's message, it does nothing.  If I go to the nova.astrometry.net status page and click the "view in WWT" link, it *does* work.

This is: this works

and it ends up at this URL.  Copy-pasting that URL to another browser tab, or another browser, also still works.

However, the OP's link does nothing:

.... and they only differ in "http" vs "https"!

Hmmmm, now I am also finding that posting the https link into Firefox does *not* work, while the http link *does* work.

I would suggest reporting this to the WWT folks.  Nothing Astrometry.net can do about *this*!

cheers,
dustin

Ahhh, I see what is happening.  Looking in the browser's developer tools, it looks like an http vs https CORS error.
