Slooh to Broadcast Live View of Spectacular Full Moon Lift Off from Beautiful Sedona, AZ

 

On the the evening of December 6th from North America, Slooh will broadcast the full moonrise live as it lifts off from Sedona, Arizona. This represents the first in a long line of new specialty LIVE shows launching for 2015 where Slooh will cover interesting celestial phenomenons from exotic locations on Earth.

Slooh’s live coverage will begin on December 6th at 5:45 PM PST / 8:45 PM EST /0145 UTC (12/7) with Slooh host Will Gater and Slooh astronomer Bob Berman. Viewers can ask questions during the show by using hashtag #sedonamoon

Longtime Slooh elite image partner, Matt Francis of Prescott Observatory in Arizona, will be onsite in Sedona using special imaging and communication equipment -  providing a live feed of the full moon as it rises majestically above the horizon.

“We decided many Moons ago, during the excitement over the Supermoon broadcasts, that it would be spectacular to cover all full moonrises during the year, and to do it in a way that generates drama by capturing these events from spectacular locations on Earth. To that end, December 6th will be our first showing of the spectacular Moon rise as it blasts off from Sedona, AZ,” says Slooh Producer, Eric Edelman.

Known for its towering, red, sandstone rock formations, Sedona’s iconic landscape will serve as a profound backdrop to the beautiful full moonrise. Watch as the Moon climbs these steep rock pillars live with Slooh.

Says Slooh astronomer Bob Berman, “There is a reason the rising full moon has figured centrally in nearly all civilizations through the millennia, and inspired both crude and architecturally sophisticated structures to mark its position on the horizon. Beyond the science, there’s an ineffable impact. Whether it’s a matter of genetic memories or simple sheer beauty, we all enjoy it. And if the location carries its own visceral impact, so much the better.”
