Join Slooh Astronomer Paul Cox and Slooh Educator Russell Glenn for an astronomy lesson livestream featuring Slooh’s online telescopes, on Thursday, March 19th, 2020 at 4:30 PM EDT ¦ 20:30UTC. Slooh’s live lesson will be educational, inspiring and soothing and include views of space from Slooh’s ten online telescopes, including those situated at its world-class flagship observatory at the Institute of Astrophysics of the Canary Islands which makes daytime astronomy possible for students in the United States. During the program, students will learn how to explore space by following in the footsteps of famous astronomers to make their own personal discoveries using Slooh’s Quest curriculum. 

The free, live astronomy lesson will be streamed via YouTube, Twitter and Facebook, as well as from any websites that want to embed the live YouTube video as per the instructions below. Students will be able to ask questions on Slooh’s website (membership required).
