Dr. David Lawrence, one of the lead scientists for the Psyche mission saw the asteroid for the first time on Slooh! He and his team will be traveling there in just a few years to unlock the secrets of the metallic world.

Today is actually the mid point between the Autumnal Equinox & the Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere. Spring & Summer in the South.

The #TauridMeteorShower is tonight and tomorrow, if you're out star gazing and happen to catch any meteors, share them if us!

According to our Twitter poll #Betelgeuse is the spookiest astro object! You don't have to say it's name three times to find it, just look towards the constellation Orion's left shoulder.

Spooky? The nebulae in Orion's belt are a lot more interesting in an 8" telescope, although Betelgeuse is orange. With a 100" telescope, the 1/2 second of arc of the star can be resolved as a smudged blur.

In the Southern Hemisphere (Buenos Aires in this example) Antares, Venus, and Saturn will appear side by side tonight, with Mars above them.

A surprise benefit to working next to a farm, the sheep lick our cars clean. The big open space keeps the sky dark for our telescopes.

As we were looking at the planetary movements yesterday we noticed six planets would be lining up tonight. The sky should look like this around 6:45 PM EDT, Northern hemisphere. Only Venus, Mars, and Saturn will be visible with the naked eye though.

Tonight, 20-60 minutes after sunset Saturn, Venus, and the bright star Antares will appear to line up above the Southwestern horizon. To their South, Mars will appear as well. Pluto will also be in our sky tonight, though it's too faint to see with the naked eye. Thanks to Slooh community member Stephen Aman for the heads up.

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.”
