Thanks to the dedicated folks at SLOOH who coordinated live coverage of the May 20, 2012 solar eclipse with the help of a Google Hangout.  

The feed from the Grand Canyon experienced a technical glitch in the feed.  Just as much work to set up, so thanks to that group for their part of a team effort.

See video of the coverage by Bob Berman and team.

SLOOH is going to cover the Transit of Venus on June 5, 2012.  If you’re the sort of person who enjoys this sort of thing, consider contributing.
