Children around the world can capture some unique Christmas magic in a gift from Slooh.
Christmas Eve is fast approaching, which means Santa and his elves are hard at work finishing up the last of the toys, packing the sleigh, and readying the reindeer for his special ride. Over the course of the night, Santa and his team will crisscross the globe,working fast to deliver presents to millions of good girls and boys everywhere.
And Slooh has a special Christmas treat for our viewers. The Full Moon will be high in the sky during Santa’s trip, and Slooh astronomers say they might be able to catch a glimpse of jolly Saint Nick and his sleigh, from our SantaScope, as they pass in front of the Full Moon.
This is the first time the Full Moon has fallen on Christmas since 1977, and Slooh will enable you to capture Santa and his flying reindeer in our StarShare camera, which will be made available to the public for free for this day. Kids will be given the chance to snap their own photo of Santa Claus flying across the Full Moon, before visions of sugar plums dance in their heads!
We’ll be capping off the night with a special appearance by the Christmas Comet at Midnight EDT. Many believe the biblical Star of Bethlehem may have actually been a comet streaking through the night sky, guiding the Wise Men on their journey to greet the baby Jesus.
