2024Aa Packing Party

MagAO-X is up and off to the great mountain in the south! As we are approaching our next great observing run, this time in two parts: 2024Aa in March (14 nights) and 2024Ab in May (10 nights). We spent the week packing her up and buttoning her down, and today saw her stuffed into the shipping truck and waved goodbye.

Our mascot for this run is the Bubo Magellenicus, or the Lesser Horned Owl (of fluffybutt allsky cam fame)

Please enjoy this video and pics of the week’s events.

The song of the day is Yakety Sax
