Weather Report for April 15, 2016

The final night of Campaign 82 was productive. Thin cirrus, lit by the moon that was just past first quarter, moved through the area during the first three hours of the night, but this barely hindered polarimetry efforts. Clear skies were then enjoyed until past 0200 local time when thin, scattered cirrus again made occasional appearances in the sky. The seeing varied between 1.3 and 2.5 arcsec during the night.

A huge variety of weather was experienced during this campaign. Clear skies dominated during the last three nights, but before then, clouds, rain, snow, and even lightning prevented observations. The 2016 May campaign will be conducted from the Kuiper Telescope.
