YouTube will live stream SLOOH Space Camera’s feed of today’s 100-minute long, full moon, total lunar eclipse, which is set to commence a few moments after 11:20AM PDT / 2:20PM EDT. The feed of the longest lunar eclipse humans have seen in the last 11 years will come complete with “a live mission interface…equipped with audio narrations from real-life astronomers so you can hear a firsthand, expert account of the event.”
You can also catch the astronomical action from Google Earth (via this plug-in) and straight from the SLOOH.com website, which is currently featuring ads promoting the upcoming theatrical release of Transformers: Dark of the Moon, which has me half expecting to see some Decepticons appear on screen in the few moments when the whole thing goes black.
If you’re a denizen of eastern Africa, the Middle East, central Asia or western Australia, step outside and look up to catch the astronomical action. Otherwise, I’ll be watching with you online.
