Stargazers and astronomy fans who could not watch Thursday’s total lunar eclipse got a live feed of the phenomenon online, thanks to a Google Doodle and a robotic telescope service.
Google’s home page featured a “live” doodle showing a live feed of the lunar eclipse from images from robotic telescope service Slooh.
During the eclipse, visitors to Google.com can see a dial at the bottom of the image moving left to right, going through the various stages of the eclipse, before settling on the current feed.
Check it out for yourself over at google.com today before it goes away.
