If you need a break from the Perseid Meteor Shower, come join us for a Virtual Star Party. This is where we connect up a bunch of telescopes into a Google+ Hangout on Air and broadcast the skies live.
Host: Fraser Cain
Astronomers: Scott Lewis, Thad Szabo, Gary Gonella and Bill McLaughlin.
We run the Virtual Star Party every Sunday night when it gets dark on the West Coast. In the summer time, that’s 9:00 pm Pacific/12:00 am Eastern. In the Winter time, we start at 5/8 (which is much better for the East Coasters).
We’re always looking for more astronomers to join us, especially from South America, where we can get a view of the southern skies. If you’d like to participate, drop me an email at [email protected].
