154P/Brewington is 'growing' nice coma....Slooh folks should take a look at pre-teen Brewington :)

They Went Thataway!

Thursday, September 26thth

Starts 5 PM PDT / 8 PM EDT / 00 UTC (9/27)

SLOOH will explore the mind-bending topic of cosmic motion. Which way is Earth going, and how fast?
  Hosted by astronomer Bob Berman, and using live telescope views, this free program will look at the direction in space that Earth is traveling around the Sun at 18 1/2 miles per second (Hint: It's directly toward the spot the Moon occupied this morning!), and where we're aiming as we zoom at even greater speed (144 miles per second) around the center of the galaxy.
            Finally we will look at the largest scale motions that make sense -- all of which are viewable in the autumn sky.

This was great to watch live :)
Comet ISON Has A Traveling Companion:
 
Comet C/2012 S1 (ISON) wasn't alone in the pre-dawn skies above Slooh's Canary Islands Observatory tonight.  Accompanying Comet ISON was the huge asteroid "433 Eros" - the second largest Near-Earth Asteroid.  Eros was traveling in roughly the same direction as ISON, but at a slightly faster apparent speed, and can be seen above and to the right of the comet.  Slooh Members watched the images come in from the observatory in real-time, and immediately spotted the second object moving between successive images.
 
This time-lapse of five images, created this morning by Paul Cox using Slooh's online robotic telescopes, shows the two objects as they speed through the inner solar system.
 
Paul Cox is Slooh's Lead Tech and Outreach Coordinator, and has been running a series of regular online Comet ISON update shows at slooh.com.  The shows always include live images of Comet ISON during the broadcast - what a pity there wasn't a show tonight!

Comet C/2012 S1 (ISON) Slooh Telescope Images:

For the first time in weeks, the observatory was closed due to poor weather for our Comet ISON Conspiracy live show tonight - but it still went ahead.  The recorded version is here: http://youtu.be/OQs9p4YwOPA?t=50s

So we thought we'd make up for the lack of our normal live images with a set of Comet ISON images taken by Slooh Members recently.

Slooh Members are tracking and imaging not only Comet ISON every night, but also a bundle of other fascinating comets.  They're also imaging the newly discovered Comet C/2013 R1 (Lovejoy).

And back to the conspiracy theories we talked about in tonight's show, if you're still skeptical or believe there's something fishy about Comet ISON, why not use the Slooh telescopes to take your own real-time unedited images of it for yourself?!
