Space Camera to Broadcast Moon-Planet Conjunctions
Slooh Space Camera will broadcast a free, real-time feed of the Venus/Moon and Jupiter/Moon conjunction Saturday 2/25 and Sunday, 2/26 starting at 02:30 UT / 6:30 PM PST / 9:30 EST. Slooh will provide multiple observatory feeds, including from Arizona and the 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.
Conjunctions are amazing phenomena to behold as viewers will be able to see both the Moon and planet Venus or Jupiter nearby in the same field of view. Individuals can also attempt to view the conjunction using binoculars pointed at the Moon.
Slooh’s own Patrick Paolucci will join Astronomy Magazine columnist Bob Berman along with other guests and Slooh members to discuss the event live and in true color.
