Google+ Virtual Star Parties

You know how I was just talking about Virtual Star Parties? Well today at Google I/O, Google aired a video about Virtual Star Parties, featuring our friends at CosmoQuest! If you haven’t visited CosmoQuest yet, go check it out. The folks there are doing some amazing stuff.



Update: Here’s a clip from Google’s 2012 keynote where they mention Virtual Star Parties …and completely screw up Fraser’s name.

    That’s so awesome. I’m glad that what they’re doing is being recognized.

    This is awesome. I’m happy they have previous parties archived.
    I’ll have to share this with my daughter too, she loves space.

    Now that I’ve got all the bits to do live telescope viewing, I needed to work up the nerve to start hacking. This just about has me there.

    Last night’s star party was interesting. They had one ‘scope in Chicago pointed at the Moon and one somewhere in Australia pointed at the sun. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ovy8HN_YExs
