Around the Word in 80 Telescopes TONIGHT!

Here's a reminder that the Around the World in 80 Telescopes begins at 2:00 a.m. tonight (well, Friday morning).


or watch on

Since the 100 Hours of Astronomy website is getting hit hard, you might want to try viewing directly on the channel.

Here's the programming information for the 5 Caltech observatories on the show:

W.M. Keck Observatory 3 am Friday
Caltech Submillimeter Observatory 4:20 am Friday
Galaxy Evolution Explorer (Galex) 1:20 pm Friday
Spitzer Space Telescope 2:20 pm Friday
Palomar Observatory 1:40 am Saturday

All times are PDT

During the Palomar webcast you'll get to see a new astronomical image from the Hale Telescope and a short movie about the observatory. Both of which will be seen here after the event.

Today's APOD features a nice graphic for the Around the World in 80 Telescopes event.
