Whelp, here we are. After 20 days of the most excellent weather and 9 nights of impeccable seeing (last night was truly remarkable observing conditions!) we have finally hit a night with some clouds. We spent some time on a target for one of our collaborators and got her some good data, but as I write this (nearing midnight) the dome is closed and we are switching to the lab light source to do some engineering.
Here is a gif of the all-sky camera for about 10 mins, so you can see what we’re lookin’ at:
So MagAO-X got some engineering time and we took a sci-fi break thanks to Joseph’s projector he brought.
So in lieu of data, I present to you, for no particular reason, viscachas as sad celebrities.
In honor of the peaches in syrup they like to serve for dessert here, which is delicious, the song of the day in Peaches by Presidents of the United States of America.
