Observing report 3/20 and 3/24

Orion over the observatory dome, 3/24.

Monday and Thursday labs completed their first observing sessions. Everybody had a celestial sphere orientation, tour of the observatory, and a telescope view of a few objects (Orion Nebula, M67 from the HR Diagram Lab, and Jupiter). Clouds rolled through during on Thursday evening, but all sessions had at least some clear skies.

We attempted a timelapse of circumpolar motion, but mostly we got clouds!
