From Slooh.com, Santascope Provides Live Coverage Of Santa Over The Full Moon On Christmas Eve:

Children around the world can capture some unique Christmas magic in a gift from Slooh.

…Slooh has a special Christmas treat for our viewers. The Full Moon will be high in the sky during Santa’s trip, and Slooh astronomers say they might be able to catch a glimpse of jolly Saint Nick and his sleigh, from our SantaScope, as they pass in front of the Full Moon.

This is the first time the Full Moon has fallen on Christmas since 1977, and Slooh will enable you to capture Santa and his flying reindeer in our StarShare camera, which will be made available to the public for free for this day. Kids will be given the chance to snap their own photo of Santa Claus flying across the Full Moon, before visions of sugar plums dance in their heads!

We’ll be capping off the night with a special appearance by the Christmas Comet at Midnight EDT. Many believe the biblical Star of Bethlehem may have actually been a comet streaking through the night sky, guiding the Wise Men on their journey to greet the baby Jesus.

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.
