2017A Day 1: Ready

MagAO is all ready to go on the telescope. ASM is in the dome, NAS is packed up, and Clio is cold (enough). Here are a couple of standard day before pics.

Laird and Ya-Lin worked on the NAS today.
Katie stuffed liquid nitrogen into Clio all day.

A new feature at LCO is a crosswalk at the occasionally busy saddle intersection. Such things usually occur for a reason. I suspect that Alycia was involved . . .

Katie tests the new crosswalk.

We had our first Gary Galileo Guanaco visit of the run.


And we watched a nice sunset.

One last MagAO-less sunset.

I recommend playing the song of the day on the loudest sound system you have access too.
