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

by Fraser Cain on January 11, 2013

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:
