An observatory camera is set to broadcast a free, real-time feed of the “Mars opposition” on Saturday, March 3rd.
The Slooh Space Camera feed starts at 04:00 UT; 8:00 p.m. PST; 11:00 p.m. EST.
Slooh will provide multiple observatory feeds, including feeds from Arizona and the Canary Islands off the coast of Africa.
The Mars opposition — which is the closet Earth has come to Mars in the last 26 months — will make Martian features and polar caps visible through moderate-sized backyard telescopes.
Slooh will cover the opposition using a wide range of professional telescopes using patented imaging technology.
The broadcast can be accessed at Slooh’s homepage or by visiting Slooh’s G+ page, where you will be able to see the panel interact live via G+ Hangouts On Air.
