Virtual Star Party – Jan. 6, 2013: The One Year Anniversary Edition

The Virtual Star Party is one year old. Well, not the Virtual Star Party itself, but our efforts to broadcast a live view from telescopes into a Google+ hangout. Thanks to everyone who has supported us and watched our efforts evolve from those first tentative steps to our comprehensive coverage now.

Astronomers: Mike Phillips, Stuart Forman and Mark Behrendt

Commentary: Dr. Phil Plait and Ray Sanders.

Host: Fraser Cain.

Here are some pictures from the event:
