Another Broadcast For Slooh

I hosted another broadcast this morning PDT for Near Earth Asteroid 2014 HQ124 won’t hit Earth, but it will be in the neighborhood the next few days. That’s good reason for us to go live.

The image at the top of this entry shows some of the asteroid’s movement through the sky. We captured this with Slooh’s telescope in Chile. You’re seeing an object the size of an aircraft carrier from millions of miles away!

After the broadcast I stopped to ponder our own technological achievement. We had participants on from the East and West Coast, plus England and Australia. We used images taken in Australia and Chile.

We had the right experts and pictures with lots of insight, coordinated in Hartford, CT where our producer/director sits.

We’re about to make a huge technological leap which should bring up the quality of our transmissions greatly. Noticeable change.

It’s all pretty exciting and, for me, nerdy fun.

    What image??? You say it is at the start of this entry—but it isn’t. A tech faux pas?

      It’s there for me.

        Not sure your answer makes sense (to me), but OK. I just thought it would be a neat picture. I’ll just keep looking for the space station, when it passes overhead—I get notified when and where to look. It went over last night but I didn’t get outside on time. We are having Calif. weather–warm days, some breeze and cool nights. I’ll take this for the rest of the year, thank you.
