Right now a live webcast, “Around the World in 80 Telescopes” is taking place. This is a live 24-hour webcast, taking place today (Friday) that started with a broadcast from the Gemini North Telescope in Hawaii at 9 am GMT, (night time in Hawaii), moving around the globe for whistle-stop tours of the international observatories while the large telescopes are exploring night skies, observing distant galaxies, searching for extrasolar planets around other stars, or studying our own solar system. Watch below, or here’s the link for watching on UStream. They are experiencing some technical difficulties, but on the whole, this is a great chance to see observatories around the world, and see their observations, as well. Enjoy!
