Weather Report for April 2, 2014

A clear, but wildly windy night to close out Campaign 58. For most of the night, the wind was near to forcing closure of the dome and observations had to be made with the dome well away from the west. Because of this, a few western objects could not be observed early in the evening. Seeing ranged from 1-2 arcsec, with the good seeing generally taking place during the first half of the night. Much of the night was spent observing 3C279 as a ToO for this blazar was triggered yesterday for the Fermi spacecraft.

Campaign 59 will take place at Mt. Bigelow with the Kuiper Telescope, as we say goodbye to the Bok Telescope after 46 nights of use stretching back to 2013 November.
