Mark the Changing Seasons with
Live Feeds of the Sun All Morning Long
On Wednesday, December 21, at 2:30 AM PST | 5:30 AM EST | 10:30UTC (International Times: http://bit.ly/2hWhITl), Slooh will host a special livestream celebrating the moment of the Winter Solstice with live views of the Sun. Those live views will be anchored by Slooh’s special solar telescope at their flagship observatory at the Institute of Astrophysics of the Canary Islands and will be supported by live feeds from their partner observatory in Dubai.
During the live broadcast, host, Gerard Monteux, will be joined by Slooh’s Human Spirit Correspondent, Helen Avery, to discuss how the Sun and Solstice play an important role in the history of humanity, in modern spirituality, and in practices like yoga and meditation. It’s all building up to the moment of the Winter Solstice at precisely 2:44 AM PST | 5:44 AM EST | 10:44UTC, when Slooh will mark the moment when Fall becomes Winter, a moment of global transition from one season to another, a tangible event that demonstrates the movement of our Solar System and the connectedness of our world.
Following that moment, Helen will help viewers welcome the new season with a guided Sun Salutation. Viewers are encouraged to get up out of their chairs and join Slooh in a yoga and meditation session to open their minds and spirits and start the day, and season, in a calm and mindful way.
The live show is only part of Slooh’s Solstice celebration, however. In the hours before, and throughout the morning following the livestream, Slooh will provide an uninterrupted livestream of the Sun from the Canary Islands. The stream will be available on social media, as well as in the embedded video provided below and will run from 2 AM to Noon EST.
Viewers can join in on the Solstice celebration by tweeting their own Solstice moments to @Slooh, or by joining in the live chat on Facebook.
