Other than that craziness, it's been a pretty normal day. I got to see the sunrise this morning (well it was more like last night for me) for the first time this trip. The past nights, the asteroids that we were working on set around 5:30/6:00am, and it wasn't worth switching to a new asteroid for only half an hour, so we've just headed to bed half an hour early, but last night we were able to finish asteroid 1870 up right as it became nautical twilight. Watching the sun rise over the mountains was just beautiful.
The observing session tonight started with some clouds, and we had to wait about 2 or 3 hours for those to finally pass, but the rest of the night stayed clear, and we bounced back and forth between asteroid 24448 and 51958 to try and get more of their lightcurves.
