We’re not just avoiding scorpions out herebwillman | October 14, 2010
Greetings from the 0.9m telescope at Kitt Peak National Observatory! I’m here with Annie Preston, Emily Cunningham, Tim Douglas, and Erin Boettcher (Tonima Tasnim Ananna and Andrew Sturner were here, but already went home). The generosity of the Louis Green Fund supported all of the students to travel here to obtain observations of some Milky Way companions. The students will be posting here about their experiences, but limited internet access and long working hours are delaying our posts.
In the meantime, click for: a flavor of what we do all night long.
