SDSS-V is the first facility providing multi-epoch optical & IR spectroscopy across the entire sky, as well as offering contiguous integral-field spectroscopic coverage of the Milky Way and Local Volume galaxies. This panoptic spectroscopic survey continues the strong SDSS legacy of innovative data and collaboration infrastructure.
Our latest data release, DR18 is now live! This is the first data release for SDSS-V and contains targeting data for Black Hole Mapper and Milky Way Mapper, as well as eFEDS spectra and value added catalogs. Find out more about DR18 on the DR18 webpages, and in the DR18 paper.
Our next data release will be DR19, and is currently scheduled for 2024.
A time-domain, optical+IR spectroscopic survey of Milky Way stars of all types.

SDSS-V, like previous SDSS surveys, remains committed to making its data publicly available in a format that is helpful to a broad range of users, from beginner students to both amateur and professional astronomers. However, without extensive federal or other large-scale funding, this commitment is not possible to fulfill without membership contributions from institutional partners. SDSS-V is actively seeking participation from new membership partners. Our institutional partners benefit from early access to proprietary data, participation in the survey planning process, and involvement of their faculty, postdocs, and students in our global science collaborative network.
