an official event for Global Astronomy Month (April 2014)

*** Join it LIVE here! ***

Next 15 April 2014, the Moon will offer an amazing total eclipse, well visible from the US, Central America, Chile, Australia and a few more Countries. The Virtual Telescope Project was asked by many people to plan something, also because April is Global Astronomy Month, so we wanted to meet that request: unfortunately Italy – where our robotic facility is – will not see it.

We had the idea to look for collaborators willing to join this international effort and a few answered: we decided to go! The team making the live event is composed by

  • astrophotographer: Joaquin Fabrega Polleri (Asociacion Panameña de Aficionados a la Astronomia, Panama);
  • astrophotographer: Gary Varney (South Florida Amateur Astronomers Association, Florida);
  • astrophotographer: Fernando Rodriguez (South Florida Amateur Astronomers Association, Florida);
  • astrophotographer: Ron Delvaux (Delvaux Observatory, Arizona);
  • astrophotographer Marcy Malavasi (Altair , Costa Rica)
  • astrophotographer John W. Johnson (Omaha Astronomical Society, Nebraska)
  • astrophotographer James McCue (New Mexico)
  • coordinator and live comment: astrophysicist Gianluca Masi (The Virtual Telescope Project, Italy).

If you want be part of the team, please let us know.

    I just have a question; will you be streaming the video/images of the lunar eclipse all day? I am an 8th grade science teacher in Alabama and wanted to find a way for all of my students to be able to witness the beauty of the lunar eclipse. Thank you all for putting this project together, what a wonderful idea and way to celebrate this magnificent event!
