Slooh is much more than online observatories. It is patented technology delivering the cosmos live and in full color. It is a curation of the 1,000 most wondrous stars, planets, nebulae, galaxies, comets and asteroids with their stories passed down since antiquity. It is a telescope reservation system that makes shared control with a global community more fun, social and educational, with advanced control for deeper investigation.
Canary Islands Observatory
Slooh’s flagship observatory featuring six telescopes is situated at 9,000 feet at the Institute of Astrophysics of the Canary Islands, home of the largest telescope in the world. The time zone shift makes daytime astronomy possible in the United States.
Chile Observatory
Slooh’s southern hemisphere observatory, in partnership with the Catholic University, features three telescopes and extends Slooh’s live coverage of the night sky to 18 hours per day. New planned observatories will deliver 24-hour coverage by the fall of 2023.
