Weather Report for May 18, 2012

A clear, fine night until the last half hour, when light cirrus the formed on the Baja peninsula just before midnight moved over Mt. Bigelow. The seeing starting out at about 1.2 arcsec, but often became worse than 2 arcsec during the second half of the night. In addition, it was quite windy during the middle portion of the night causing some minor shaking of the telescope when pointed to targets in the south and southwest.

After a three night break to get out of the way of the University of Arizona Astronomy Camp, we'll be back at the Kuiper Telescope to begin Campaign 39 proper.
