its a busy week. i'm trying to finish up a paper before i leave chile in addition to completing the project that brought me down here. the latter will be a slightly difficult task, as the instrument, FLAMINGOS2, is *still* in florida... but i'll do my best to organize the future observations.
here's a preview from last weekends trip to the see the volcanos of the atacama desert. i want to share the rest of my peru pictures before i just to these, but here's a teaser! i absolutely loved the brilliant yellow of the plants!
also, i noticed the moon close to a bright jupiter in the sky last night! it's passing through scorpius. here's a view from the northern hemisphere with the moon a few times bigger than it actually looks on the sky, for clarity!
