Observing

Went observing for the first time ever on Friday. It’s winter, so we got started at 6, astronomical twilight was in by 7, and we were up until 6 in the morning.

Being locked in a cold dome on a mountain with a senior observer was maybe a bit intimidating at first, but shared sleep deprivation breaks down social barriers like nothing else.
