Anyone wanting a glimpse at the lunar eclipse but are unable to view due to their location should check out the Google Doodle. Folks who visit Google.com will be able to view the lunar eclipse live feed. This sounds like a nice treat for those who may have been disappointed at the idea of missing the lunar eclipse.
Google alerted their fans via Twitter about the live feed, saying: "Starting now, see the latest state of the lunar eclipse on our homepage - thanks @slooh for the imagery." What would people do without Twitter these days?
The Google Doodle take images from a live feed of the lunar eclipse via Slooh's Space Camera. Slooh.com has provided access to live telescopes from around the world since December 2003. Members of Slooh have taken over one million photos of unique objects and events in the night sky since the company launched. This sounds like an interesting site to check out anytime of the year, not just for today's special event.
So, if you live in a place where viewing the lunar eclipse is impossible, be sure to visit Google.com for all the latest goings-on during this event. Thanks, Google, for another wonderful Google Doodle!
