Star party at the White House at eight

In about quarter of an hour, a live stream will begin from the White House where Obama and family are hosting a live star party. The idea is to increase awareness of the night sky during the International Year of Astronomy, 2009, World Space Week, and show a commitment to science in general (a cloudy night may mean NASA gets cancelled tomorrow…). The event will be live on NASA TV. Further information is here.
