Slooh Space Camera to cover the “Once in a Blue Moon”
In an ongoing mission to share a live view of the universe, Slooh Space Camera will broadcast the Blue Moon live on Slooh.com, free to the public, starting on Friday, August 31st at 3:00 PM PDT / 6:00 PM EDT / 22:00 UTC – viewers can watch live on their PC or favorite IOS/Android mobile device.
This Blue Moon, which will be the last one until July 2015, can be viewed worldwide the night of August 31st – weather permitting. Blue Moons occur every 2.7 years and are defined as the second full Moon in the same calendar month. Some countries will technically not be in Blue Moon status, but they will be able to view the full Moon nonetheless.
During the program, Slooh will not only pull zoomed in, live feeds of the Moon from their Canary Islands observatory located off the coast of Africa, but will also pull stunning live feeds of the Sun from Prescott observatory in Arizona- giving viewers a unique opportunity to view both the Moon and the Sun at the same time – all live in real time and in true color.
