Slooh Space Camera To Broadcast Live Feeds Of Super Close Moon / Jupiter Conjunction


On Monday, January 21st, the Moon will appear amazingly close in the sky to the largest planet in our solar system, Jupiter. In North America, the waxing gibbous Moon — the lunar phase between first quarter and full Moon — will be approximately one degree south of Jupiter, appearing to be only a pen width (seen at arm’s length) apart. Slooh Space Camera will cover the event live on Slooh.com, free to the public, Monday, January 21st, at 6:00 p.m. PST / 9:00 p.m. EST / 02:00 UTC (1/22) — international times here: http://goo.gl/xySeo — accompanied by real-time discussions with Slooh president Patrick Paolucci, Astronomy magazine columnist Bob Berman, and astro-imager Matt Francis of the Prescott Observatory. Viewers can watch live on their PC or iOS/Android mobile device at t-minus zero.
