Last night we turned our solar telescope towards the setting Sun, catching it just as it slipped below the distant bushes on the Canary Islands' horizon.

Slooh members Bernd Lütkenhöner and Paul Cox were able to image the newly discovered Comet C/2016 R3 (Borisov) this week under extraordinary conditions. Though it was only discovered on September 11th, 2016, it had already fallen out of reach of other telescopes around the world by September 16th, but Lütkenhöner and Cox managed to image it on September 20th using Slooh's robotic Half Metre telescope at their flagship observatory on the Canary Islands. What's more impressive, they say, the comet was only observable in the last 30-minutes before dawn, when it was only 5° above the horizon in a rapidly brightening sky.

Slooh members caught this Old Waning Crescent Moon sliver just before dawn today when it was only 6° above the horizon and at 3% phase.

Slooh members were watching Jupiter and its moon Europa (the lower left dot in this image) on January 26th, 2014, the same night as NASA when they made their recently announced discovery of water plumes on that moon.

Let's Explore the Universe Together
Introduction
Slooh connects humanity through communal exploration of the universe. We gather people around live telescopes to see space for themselves and share their diverse perspectives. We are Space for Everyone.

Since 2003, Slooh has enabled people to explore the universe together through its global network of telescopes. Slooh’s automated observatories develop celestial images in real-time for broadcast to the Internet. Slooh members have taken over 4m photos/150,000 FITS of over 50,000 celestial objects, participated in numerous discoveries with leading astronomical institutions and made over 3,000 submissions to the Minor Planet Center. Slooh’s flagship observatories are situated on Mt. Teide, in partnership with the Institute of Astrophysics of the Canary Islands (IAC), and in Chile, in partnership with the Catholic University. Slooh has also broadcast live celestial events from partner observatories in Arizona, Japan, Hawaii, Cypress, Dubai, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Norway and many more. Slooh’s free live broadcasts of potentially hazardous asteroids (PHAs), comets, transits, eclipses, solar activity etc. feature narration by astronomy experts Paul Cox and Bob Berman and are syndicated to media outlets worldwide. Slooh signed a Space Act Agreement with NASA in March 2014 to “Bring the Universe to Everyone and Help Protect Earth, Too.”
