Watch The Strawberry Moon From Your Computer
As you may have read earlier today in an excellent post from Glenn on the Strawberry Moon/ Summer Solstice, the sky might be your best entertainment tonight. If you miss it, you'll have to wait another 46 years and I don't know about you, I don't want to wait! The last time this event happened was 70 years ago.
And wouldn't you know it, the latest forecast from WBNG-TV does not show a promising forecast for watching this rare occurrence with the moon. So in my effort to find you the best alternative, I think I found it, thanks to the Old Farmer's Almanac.
The show will be live on your computer tonight (June 20) at 8pm Eastern from Slooh's flagship observatory at the Institute of Astrophysics in the Canary Islands. According to the OFA press release, "Slooh host Paul Cox will be joined by Almanac astronomer Bob Berman to to discuss the historical background on this rare astronomical combination."
If you watch tonight, expect the images to be the best available featuring amazing live telescope feeds.
