On Friday, Google announced it is partnering with Slooh, a service popular with astronomy buffs that lets its users view live events through its global network of observatories, and take photographs of what they see.
The Internet giant will integrate data from Slooh into its Google Sky service, meaning that any user of that system will be able to see member-taken photographs of deep space, as well as watch live events, such as eclipses.
This is an image of Slooh's mission interface, showing what users would see while viewing a live event from one of the company's observatory telescopes.
