Live from the Moon
Alcanza La Luna (Reach the Moon) allows you to watch a live telescope view of the Moon. Connect to Alcanza La Luna with a Facebook or Twitter account and you can even take control of the telescope and explore the Moon for yourself.
Alcanza La Luna has control of four telescopes positioned at different locations around the world, all within different time-zones. This enables Alcanza La Luna to provide live coverage of the Moon for 19 hours each day (certain conditions being favorable). The Moon is live from 7:00 am to 2:00 am every day (Spanish time).
The application includes a very basic map of the Moon (click on Mapa Lunar). This enables you to discover which major features you can see in the current live stream of the Moon. The little map in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen also updates to provide information on the current telescope view.
