This May 26th, the Moon will be keeping its distance from Earth. It will be the day of apogee, which is when the Moon is its absolute furthest from us. Even though our neighbor may be keeping us at arms length, our telescopes will bridge that gap, and stage a meeting between the people of Earth and our lovely luna.

Watch live as our astronomers discuss the monthly motions and evolution of our Moon. Knowing the celestial dance it does, we stare at it from afar with supreme confidence it will soon, inevitably return.

Star gazers can look up to find the Moon cradled between the constellations of Virgo, Leo, and Hydra on this night. See the crescent outdoors for yourself before watching on Slooh as we come face to face.
