Hey there, G+! 

For all of you who are clubhouse members, we have not one show for tonight, but two! The first show starts in only five minutes, where we will talk about the shy moon of May. :) http://t.co/UnVzISmBUr

Later on tonight, we'll range a little further from home and visit one of the further-flung members of our solar neighborhood: Neptune!  Don't miss it! http://t.co/zOd8KIZrik
This May 26th, the Moon will be keeping its distance from Earth. It will be the day of apogee, which is when the Moon is its absolute furthest from us. Watch the shy Moon live.

Hey there, G+!

Galaxy Night was called off due to weather last week, but that's okay! We're ready to go again, and it's on for tomorrow night!

Now, we just need that dust to stay down on the ground, where it's wanted...

If you'd like to join us for the show, you can do so at http://bit.ly/1FrO6Vn
Bob Berman and Eric Edelman will provide members with a live tour of some of the most incredible nearby galaxies.

Hey there, G+! 

If any of our Clubhouse members were planning to join us for the Galaxy Night show, there have been some dust storms which have forced us to move it out to the 20th. Stay tuned, and we'll keep you updated!

Hey there, G+! 

I got a question about Asteroid 1999 FN53 since it's been in the media for a few days, and I wanted to make sure that everyone knew not to worry. I spoke with our team, and they were good enough to put together an informational post on it. If you'd like more information on this asteroid, please check out at  http://bit.ly/1RFLOal
The small asteroid called 1999 FN53 makes a close approach to Earth on May 14, 2015, passing within about 6.3 million miles of Earth or about 26x the Earth-Moon distance. That’s close in cosmic terms but far enough from Earth to remain completely harmless. There is no chance this mile-wide body will impact Earth now …

The messenger planet, Mercury, will be visible above the horizon through the middle of this month. Want to know more? Check out http://bit.ly/1PuLF5r!
The speedy planet Mercury remains visible above the western horizon after sunset through mid-May 2015. The planet reached greatest eastern elongation on May 7 and remains tangled between the stars of the Hyades and Pleiades about 8º to 10º above the northwestern horizon. Go have a look for Mercury for yourself, and bring a pair …

Opposition Kid and I decided to make models in celebration of tonight's show! She decided that Saturn is (obviously) red and purple. Oh, the joys of being eight...

The night of May 22nd or morning of May 23rd, depending on your time zone, is when Saturn hits its opposition, also known as the time it is closest to Earth all year. The live feed for this show will be coming from Slooh telescopes at the Canary Islands that will endeavor to highlight the beauty of this planet’s rings.  Twitter users can ask questions via the hashtag #SuperSaturn  

Start time: Friday, May 22th
6:00 PM PDT / 9:00 PM EDT / 01:00 UTC (5/23)

Hey there, G+!
We have some exciting stuff on the horizon, not the least of which is the double transit of Jupiter coming up! Though we won't be doing a show this time, it will be easily visible from Slooh's telescopes. Check out our post about the upcoming double transit, and tell us what you think! http://bit.ly/1Kgha5a

If you've been watching our webcasts recently, you know that noctilucent clouds are something we've been talking about a lot lately. If you'd like to know more about these shining clouds, check out http://bit.ly/1IxRcrK
Some fascinating sights in the night sky lie close to home. Meteors, aurorae, and skyglow, for example, are all captivating phenomena visible just at the edge of space. During the recent Slooh broadcast of the 2015 Lyrid meteor shower, Slooh astronomers discussed another phenomenon of the upper atmosphere: the ethereal electric-blue glow of noctilucent clouds …

Another lovely image of the sun from NASA, and a wonderful question from Twitter! If you've watched our last few webcasts, you may get a giggle. :)

Robotic Space Cameras. Membership. Live Celestial Shows. Astronomy.
Introduction

Slooh produces live, celestial event programming using patented imaging technology and world class observatories. We broadcast shows on a weekly basis to the general public where astronomers explain what you are seeing.

Members have the opportunity to take control of our 20" and 14" telescopes in the Canary Islands, where they can snap, share, and personalize their own space photos. Astronomy in real time and true color.

Since its founding, it has been SLOOH’s mission to promote scientific enlightenment. Sharing a view through a powerful telescope trained on the light of a distant world inspires people to celebrate their commonality and rethink the schema of life. Prepare to be humbled.

SLOOH aspires to restore mankind’s subliminal connection to the seasonal ebb and flow of the night sky. The average Mayan of 3000 years ago had a deeper affinity. Why? The light from our expanding cities has literally crowded out the view of space.

What have we been missing? A sense of order; the daily rise and set of neighboring planets and their moons, comets that zoom back into view after periodic absences. Perspective; the ancient light of distant spiral galaxies that remind one of our home here in the Milky Way. Discovery; stars that go bang in the night, to be witnessed from here on Earth, this one by astronomers at Cal Tech, et al., and the members of SLOOH.

SLOOH is powered by its members—men, women and children in 80 countries who have taken 1.3 million photos of 35,000 unique objects and events in the night sky since our launch on Christmas Day, 2003. We’ve shared the view as Mercury and Venus transited the Sun; during Solar and Lunar Eclipses, as an asteroid slammed into Jupiter and NASA crashed a space ship into the Moon. And now we’re sharing the view with our friends at Google. We’re pleased to announce a joint initiative with Google Sky to Map the Universe and co-promote live astronomy. All SLOOH member photos will now be integrated into Google Earth/Sky for the world to see, and SLOOH’s live missions will be featured as well. SLOOH also shares the view with schools throughout the world and your membership supports this educational outreach.
