Astronomy Day Marathon: 11hrs of LIVE astronomy!
Everyone is welcome to our FREE public shows at slooh.com
. Please spread the word!
To celebrate Astronomy Day on Saturday October 20th, +Slooh Space Camera will be bringing you a marathon 11-hours of full-color live astronomy! Slooh's +Paul Cox will be telling the story of our Universe illustrated with live images from Slooh's robotic telescopes. There will also be the chance to win Slooh memberships to control Slooh's robotic telescopes! Coxy will also be sponsoring three classroom memberships to enable kids and their teachers to control the telescopes in real-time direct from their classrooms!
Live coverage begins on Saturday at 12:30PM PDT / 3:30PM EDT / 19:30UTC, and ends eleven hours later at 11:30PM PDT / 2:30AM EDT / 06:30UTC. International times here: http://goo.gl/LrBqS
The broadcast will be split into separate shows, each focusing on a particular topic and various celestial objects.
From ancient swarms of stars as old as the Universe; to galaxies merging in huge cosmic collisions; vast clouds of interstellar gas and dust, where giant hot stars are bursting into life; through to the cataclysmic explosions of stars as they end their lives leaving beautiful nebulae filled with the building blocks for life; and of course our own solar system - with the gas giant Jupiter and attendant moons, ice giants Neptune and Uranus, and those intriguing left-overs of solar system construction - comets and Near-Earth Asteroids. We'll be viewing live images of these and many other objects direct from Slooh's Observatory at the world-class astronomical site in the Canary Islands.
You always know that the Slooh Space Camera images are live and in full color!
Did you know? .... If you have a Pinterest account, you can pin any of the live images straight to your pinboard!
