Do you Slooh? Mr. Brown can Slooh, can you?

St. Patrick’s Day is a great time to get to know Slooh, an online community observatory, because they’re featuring a very green event:

On his journey to the total solar eclipse at the ends of the Earth, Slooh Observatory Engineer Paul Cox will be making a stop in Iceland to marvel at the Northern Lights. Slooh will be putting on a live show, letting you see Paul’s experience through incredible imagery being broadcast in real time throughout the show.

I should also take this opportunity to plug two of my favorite Irish blogs, The Irish Aesthete, which showcases vintage Irish art and architecture, meticulously documenting the stories behind it, and Ed Mooney Photography. Eddie’s a dedicated ruin hunter who documents old castles and historical sites, often in striking black and white shots. Feast your eyes on the riches of Ireland at both sites.

Éire Go Brách!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to the 80 million or so people of Irish descent out there in the world today– and everyone else who’s Irish for the day. Sláinte!

When Erin first rose from the dark swelling flood
God Bless’d the Emerald Isle, and saw it was good;
The em’rald of Europe, it sparkled and shone–
In the ring of the world, the most precious stone.

-William Drennan, Irish poet
