Slooh Space Camera to Broadcast Live Feeds of Saturn Opposition from Multiple Observatories with Space Experts
Slooh Space Camera will broadcast a free, real-time feed of Saturn at opposition, with the giant planet's rings now optimally angled at over 13 degrees, revealing them better than they have appeared in the past five years. Slooh’s coverage will begin on Sunday, April 15th starting at 6:30 PM PDT / 9:30 PM EDT / 01:30 UTC (April 16th). Slooh will provide two distinct observatory feeds - one from a remote location in South Africa and the second from their world class observatory site in Canary Islands off the coast of Africa. The broadcast can be accessed at Slooh’s homepage or by visiting Slooh’s G+ page, where you will be able to see the panel interact live via G+ Hangouts On Air.
Slooh will have an intriguing panel of experts throughout the event, including Duncan Copp, producer of many astronomical documentaries, including In the Shadow of the Moon, Amanda Hendrix, Cassini's deputy project scientist from NASA JPL, and Bob Berman, author of numerous astronomy books and contributing editor and monthly columnist for Astronomy Magazine.
“In 40 years of observing the heavens and watching people's reactions to celestial glories, I've found that no object elicits more amazement and sheer wonder than Saturn. I am thrilled to be part of Slooh's live close-up visit to that magnificent planet,” said Bob Berman.
