Google + and astronomy

So Google + started a new feature yesterday(?) called 'Communities'.
So I searched for astronomy and joined a community called
'Amateur Astronomers' and on there they posted a G+ Hangout
where they watch and explain an Exoplanet transit of Qatar-1b.

I've been pretty big on G+ and the Virtual Star Parties. Nice find!

Slooh Space Camera also has a G+ account. I get regular invites to their events. Some can be very interesting!

I've heard about the astronomy G+ Hangouts but never watched any.
That one seemed cool due to the whole 'Exoplanet' thing.
The thing I really like is the G+ astronomy Communities.
(Plus the other G+ communities I joined.)

Nightskiesnetwork.com is kinda everyday, no schedule, day and night, weather permitting. And you're always invited to broadcast. It has a chat box and only the broadcaster has the mic.

I've been on a few of the G+ hangouts. There is quite the amateur astronomy community. If you're on there feel free to add me, Mike Rector
