Slooh's next mission is to livestream a Star Party featuring live telescope streams of the spectacular Comet NEOWISE. The comet now comes within reach of Slooh's huge telescopes at its flagship observatory at the Institute of Astrophysics of the Canary Islands.

The Star Party commences on Saturday, July 18, at 5 PM EDT (21:00UTC). The general public can watch live on Slooh's Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube channels. Slooh members can personally join the Star Party at Slooh.com using Zoom to discuss the event with our expert hosts.

Slooh's Chief Astronomical Officer, Paul Cox, said: "It's a truly magical experience to witness such a large comet gracing our skies! We'll be telling viewers how they can see it from their backyards, and Slooh members will continue to watch it in Slooh's live telescope views every night this week.
