siding spring obs fires: back to science!

wonderful news from siding spring observatory one month after the fires swept through: we had the first successful night of observing with the 4m anglo-australian telescope last night! 

the first image was of the spindle galaxy, taken by research fellow angel lopez-sanchez.  angel wrote about his night observing which you can read firsthand here

congratulations and a big thank you to all involved!

let me know if you have any specific questions about the site or operations and i'll try to answer them.
