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).

Visit http://100hoursofastronomy.org/webcast

or watch on

http://www.ustream.tv/channel/100-hours-of-astronomy

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